NCAA official explains rain delay decision

An official from the NCAA just came and spoke with the media in the press box to explain the rain delay and what we can expect for the rest of the day.

Both head coaches and the NCAA made the decision to delay the start of the Clemson-UNCG game earlier today based on the radar and speaking with a meteorologist. There was a line of storms expected to come through Clemson earlier today, but it got to the lake and just stopped.

The NCAA official said they will play this game and then make a decision on the next one. The NCAA rule book says that they do not want to start a game any later than 11 p.m. and there must be a minimum of 55 minutes between games.

Again, these decisions were not made solely by the NCAA, but by officials from both schools.
