The snowstorm affecting New England has caused the postponement or cancellation of several college athletic events on Saturday for Boston-based schools, with some of them pushed back one day to make for safer transportation.
Harvard moved its men’s hockey game (vs. Dartmouth) and men’s basketball game (at Columbia) to Sunday. The Crimson women’s basketball team moved its Friday home game against Cornell to Saturday at 6 p.m., and Saturday’s originially scheduled home game against Columbia will now tip off Sunday at 4 p.m. The Harvard women’s hockey team will play at home Sunday against Yale (a makeup of Friday’s postponement), and its Saturday game against Brown was rescheduled for Feb. 19.
The Northeastern’s women’s hockey team will not visit Connecticut Saturday as scheduled; the game was moved to Feb. 19. The NU women’s basketball team had its Sunday home contest against North Carolina-Wilmington postponed to a date to be determined.
Boston College and Boston University both postponed their women’s hockey games on Saturday, the Eagles’ game at Providence now Feb. 19 and the Terriers’ home matchup against New Hampshire now Feb. 20.
