Hoyas vs UF stopped
November 9, 2012 - Due to condensation on the USS Bataan's hardwood floor, affixed on it's flight deck, Georgetown and Florida both decided it was best for all involved not to play the second half. At intermission, Florida led 27-23.
Head Hoya John Thompson III on choosing not to play: "It's so slippery. It's an ice skating rink right now. We we had our shoot around last night, and it kept getting worse and worse as the shoot around went on. And you come back out after halftime, and realize it's the same thing".
The game is officially suspended. Thompson, when asked if the contest, both team's first, wold count in the standings, shared "To be honest, I'm not sure. I've never been part of a game that was suspended...".
Apparently NCAA rules suggest a continuance, based upon each team's conference rules.
Be sure to see our Premium Court message board for more Thompson quotes, as well as those from sophomore Otto Porter and Head Gator Billy Donovan.
When the game's dispensation is determined, we will have it here.
