With about 3 hours to go before the Zags were set to tip off against the Portland Pilots, Portland’s Athletic Director Scott Leykam tweeted out that tonight’s game would be postponed due to inclement weather.
Tonight's game has been postponed due to safety concerns for the student athletes, officials, staff and fans.— Scott Leykam (@sleykam) January 7, 2017
Though there might not be heavy snow in Portland at the moment, concerns about dangerous conditions and the prospect of icy roads was enough to warrant postponement of tonight’s game.
WCC officials determined that the game would not be rescheduled for Sunday, and a makeup date has not yet been announced. The teams are expected to work out a new date in the next few days.
There are no open dates in the usual Thursday/Saturday time slots in the WCC schedule, but a makeup game shouldn’t be too hard to squeeze into the schedule, especially since Portland is the closest WCC school in proximity to Gonzaga. We’ll keep you updated once more information is released.
