Wednesday night’s basketball game between Massachusetts and George Washington has been postponed due to the 6 p.m. curfew imposed in D.C. after rioting broke out at the Capitol.

The Atlantic 10 will work to reschedule the game at a later date, a release read.

The Colonials were originally scheduled to tip off against the Minutemen at 6 p.m. in Foggy Bottom. The game has been postponed after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building.

According to a release, the Massachusetts basketball team is currently leaving the District and will travel back to Massachusetts.

“Due to the current protests in Washington, D.C., and the curfew issued by Washington officials, the scheduled Wednesday Atlantic 10 Conference men’s basketball game between Massachusetts and George Washington has been postponed,” a statement read.
