OXON HILL, Md. – Dampness on the court in several places from leaks overhead led to an hour-plus delay and an eventual decision to move the JB Hoops Bucci game vs. Freedom 17 Red from New Jersey to this afternoon on another court.
When no timely solution could be found to the water issues on Court 14 – the only court at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center to be affected – the game was postponed until Monday afternoon.
Originally scheduled for 11:25 a.m. start, the game was moved to 2:50 p.m. on Court 23. Both teams are 4-0 heading into the game, which will complete the schedule and decide the champion on Pool G.
Both teams advance to bracket play Tuesday – the winner in the championship division; the loser in the consolation division.
