Blame it on the rain. Or, in this case, the rain and the lightning were the culprit. East Carolina and Binghampton never got their game in Friday night so today will be busy here in Greenville, North Carolina.
East Carolina and Binghampton are scheduled to play at 10:00 this morning. The loser will play George Mason at 2:00. The winner of the East Carolina-Binghampton game will play USC at 6:00 tonight.
Of course these times are tentative. You can bet that things will run behind even if the weather is good (the forecast is better for Saturday but other than the 10:00 game all bets are off).
This is a tough break for East Carolina. The Pirates should be able to handle outmanned Binghampton, but now they will likely have to play two games Saturday. The Gamecocks may have caught a break because they get to rest until the final game today. Regardless of who wins the first game, Carolina is guaranteed to face a team playing its second game of the day.
Rain or shine we will be here to keep you up to date on all the action.
