The winter storm that pounded the south and cost us Wednesday night’s Duke-UNC battle has claimed more victims.

Temple has postponed their home game against No. 13 Louisville on Thursday night. That game will be made up on Friday night at 6:00 p.m. EST.

SMU’s visit to Rutgers has also been postponed, as the Northeast is currently getting battered by the storm. That game will be played at 7:00 p.m. EST Friday.

This saddens me, northerners. We’re supposed to be able to mock the south for not being able to handle the snow.
