MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association has canceled girls state basketball tournament games scheduled for Thursday because a winter storm has left hazardous road conditions.

The TSSAA announced the move Thursday morning, saying officials had been monitoring the weather and road conditions since 4 a.m.

Bernard Childress, executive director of the TSSAA, said in a statement there was no way they are willing to put any student-athlete’s life in jeopardy to play a basketball game.

Games at Murphy Center will resume Friday at 11 a.m. allowing roads time to improve. The delay means semifinal games scheduled for Friday will start Saturday at 1:30 p.m. because of a Middle Tennessee women’s college game scheduled to start at 10 a.m.

The finals scheduled for Saturday now will be played Sunday.
