Washington's men's basketball game against Lehigh, scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday, has been canceled... or at least postponed.
The Mountain Hawks were actually in the air when the decision was made, and the team turned back to New Jersey, where they had moved to 7-3 with a win over Monmouth.
Given the geography between the two schools -- Lehigh is located in Bethlehem, Pa. -- the holidays and the approach of conference play, rescheduling seems difficult.
Here is part of the university's press release:
Due to the inclement weather that has affected the Pacific Northwest, the University of Washington's men's basketball game against Lehigh University that was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon has been cancelled.
The two teams are hoping to reschedule the contest.
The Unviersity of Washington has suspended operations and the Husky Ticket Office is closed today due to the weather.
Washington is currently scheduled to return to action on Sunday, December 28 in a noon tipoff against the University of Montana.
