CHAPEL HILL — The North Carolina-Duke game has been postponed amid a winter storm that has wreaked havoc on area roadways. The game will be played but a makeup date hasn’t been decided, according to a statement that UNC released.

“Duke’s bus is not able to get to their campus to pick up the team in time to be able to make the trip to Chapel Hill so we can’t play this evening.” UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham said in a statement. “The safety of the teams and officials is the number one priority and this was the best decision to make at this time.

“Coach Williams, Coach Krzyzewski, (Duke AD) Kevin White and I will be on the phone with the ACC and make a decision as to when to play the game as soon as possible.”
