The great blizzard of 2003 forced the postponement of last night's game between No. 9 Pittsburgh and Georgetown. The game will be played at 7 tonight at MCI Center.
Georgetown, in conjunction with the Big East Conference, decided to call off last night's game. The school cited fan safety, trouble with referees getting to the city, and the fact that Metro was not running on a regular schedule as reasons for the postponement. MCI Center is located at the Gallery Place-Chinatown stop accessible by Metro's red, yellow and green lines.
The downside of the postponement is that ESPN planned to air the game nationally last night but won't show it tonight because it is slated to broadcast a Big Ten game between Michigan State and Illinois at 7.
The Panthers beat the snow by bussing to the District and arriving late Saturday afternoon after their 73-61 loss at Seton Hall. The Hoyas also came home by bus Saturday following their 85-73 win at Virginia Tech.
