Women’s basketball game postponed indefinitely

The GW women’s basketball home game against Richmond that was originally scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed indefinitely, the GW Department of Athletics announced.

The game was originally pushed back until Thursday due to heavy snowfall expected in D.C., but was delayed until a date yet to be determined once the storm began Wednesday.

The Atlantic 10 women’s basketball tournament begins March 5, meaning the conference contest with the Spiders would need to be played before that date.

“We’ll be able to play the Richmond game at some time,” Director of Athletics Jack Kvancz said. “When that sometime is, I don’t know, but I think that the fact that we’re only two hours away, we can probably get a time.”

This marks the second time a women’s basketball game has been impacted by snow this season. The team’s Dec. 20 game against Mount St. Mary’s was canceled as well.
