Weather curtails TV broadcast of UNC at Georgia Tech, but game still on

ESPN has canceled Wednesday's broadcast of the North Carolina at Georgia Tech men's basketball game.

The game is still on, however, and is slated to tip-off at 7 p.m. According to a Georgia Tech release, ACC policy dictates that the only reason to cancel a game is if conditions affect the safety of teams or officials.

ESPN crews were unable to safely get their full production crew to McCamish Pavilion in Atlanta, where traffic has been snarled since Tuesday's winter storm.

UNC spokesman Steve Kirschner said road conditions around the arena are poor. He added that team officials are still considering options on how to get the Tar Heels safely back to Chapel Hill following the game.

UNC will carry the Tar Heel Sports Network's audio play-by-play broadcast for free on GoHeels.com.

ESPN will broadcast a video feed of the game on ESPN3, its online streaming service.
