Yeah ... 1970s was when the divisions split and the scholarships became an official thing - per se.

Really cool history.

 They just don't have a superior ballhandler. They missed Bosland tonight. I'd let Kyle, Jackson, and Logan use their energy on slashes to the basket, getting a pass from Ben. They also have to go thru Mancuso more like they did before his injury. Don't know if it's still the injury or playing conference foes whose coaches try to limit Mancuso.

The timing I'm hearing for the general area is it ramps up in the late afternoon and evening? That's from what I know down here and what others in New York are telling me. Maybe they can still get the games in?

And to be clear ... they wouldn't cancel, they would postpone. It sounds like semantics, but it's a significant difference. :)

It is a topic of conversation in the world I live in ... trust me, people throw around canceled a lot and it only breeds confusion. It happened earlier this month with Merchant Marine postponing game. But the best might have been last summer when working some minor league baseball games and the team announced the "game was canceled; it will be played tomorrow at 12pm."

Anyway... I just wanted to make sure because in other chat rooms when someone has said a game was canceled, it has started a question about whether it was really canceled or postponed and are they sure the conference would approve that, etc.

So I was just making sure ... not doing anything more than that.

 Just read of a ban imposed by the PA Governor on commercial vehicles on interstates, turnpike, & rt 22 from noon tomorrow to noon Sunday - may force the Royals to stay overnight.

Two nights in Juniata???

That's the equivalent of a Junior year abroad.  ;)
