Snow storm slows Tar Heels in Atlanta
Posted January 29, 2014
UNC's basketball team was gone from the Triangle by the time snow covered the area's roadways Tuesday night, but the Tar Heels didn't completely escape weather-related issues ahead of their Wednesday meeting with Georgia Tech.
Due to the snowy conditions, ESPN has cancelled their broadcast of the UNC, Georgia Tech game at 7 p.m. Fans can follow a live blog at WRALSportsFan.com to keep up with the action when they tip Wednesday night.
After arriving at Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport Tuesday, the basketball team was stranded for several hours because of gridlock on Atlanta-area roadways.
Senior point guard Leslie McDonald posted a photo on Instagram to express frustration over being "stuck" at the airport, and other players and coaches weighed in on Twitter to detail what ended up being a wild night for the Heels.
Wednesday's 7 p.m. matchup with Georgia Tech has not been postponed although it's unclear if any fans will be able to make it to the arena since they may still be stuck on Atlanta's highways.
