The Tarheels and Blue Devils are slated to tip off at 9pm eastern tonight, and people are just giving up any pretense of navigating through the snowy roads around Chapel Hill. If some are fans, they’d still have four hours to make it to their seats, so it seems a bit early to give up. In any event, UNC just released a statement saying that the game is still on. One suspects that fans will endure the elements and fill the arena.
Update: The game has been canceled:
It's official, Duke couldn't make the trip, the game is postponed.
