OSU-Marquette game canceled

Published 11:56pm Sunday, November 11, 2012

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — The game between No. 4 Ohio State and Marquette aboard the USS Yorktown at the Carrier Classic on Friday night has been canceled because of unsafe conditions on the court.

Referee John Cahill said they waited about an hour, but the moisture on the court could not be dried. Cahill said it was in the best interest of the teams to cancel the game.

The contest was part of the second Carrier Classic. Earlier in the day, the No. 7 Notre Dame women defeated No. 19 Ohio State 57-51. There was no problem with the court during that game.

The contest raises money for several groups designed to help troops and veterans. It was a showcase for Veterans Day weekend.

Cahill said the decision was made in agreement with both coaches and athletic directors.
