Wet courts led to the cancellation of two men’s college basketball games on the decks of aircraft carriers on Friday night.
The game between No. 4 Ohio State and Marquette on the USS Yorktown in Mount Pleasant, S.C., was canceled before it began due to moisture on the court. Coach Buzz Williams and Thad Matta decided it was in the best interest of the players’ health to not play on a damp surface.
Wisconsin opens up their regular season basketball schedule on Sunday as they host Southeastern Louisiana at the Kohl Center. Coverage begins at Noon on Sunday with the tip set for 1pm.
It was a slow start for the Bucks last night but they were able to climb out of a 12 point head start they gave the Wizards defeating them 101-91. Milwaukee had 5 players scoring in double figures, lead by Monta Ellis with 22. Brandon Jennings was ejected late in the game for shoving rookie Bradley Beal after Beal was called for a flagrant foul on an Ellis breakaway.
The Bucks improve to 3-1 on the season and host Boston on Saturday night. Coverage begins at 7:10pm with the tip set for 7:30pm on KFIZ.
