NCAA Statement on delayed start time of Clemson-WCU

Message from J.D. Hamilton with the NCAA:

“After the conclusion of last night’s Clemson-Oklahoma St. game, the NCAA Site Representatives and the host institution tournament management reviewed the weather monitoring system and also met with local meteorologists and they were informed of a weather system that would bring a line of showers that could impact Sunday’s action.

At the time last night, the decision was to stay with the Noon (ET) start. However, early this morning, all parties were updated that a storm would hit the Clemson area shortly after the original game time. The NCAA Site Representatives conferred with the Clemson, Western Carolina, and NCAA staff, and a determination was made that in the interest of competitive equity, it was decided to move the start time of the game between Clemson and Western Carolina to 5 p.m. (ET). This revised start time would take place after the weather system was expected to have passed through the local area. We did not want to start and stop the game in case of bad weather.

Despite the expertise of the meteorologists and the radar accounts, Mother Nature had a different plan. It is our intention, weather permitting, to play game six this evening. It would tentatively be scheduled to begin 55 minutes after the completion of game five.”
