Tonight's Games at George Fox Postponed Until Sunday

Pacific Lutheran has postponed its Friday night women's and men's basketball games against George Fox University in Newberg, Ore., to Sunday night because of snow- and ice-related issues in the Puget Sound area.

The games will be played at their normal times, the women tipping off at 6 p.m., followed at 8 p.m. by the men's game.

Heavy snow and ice accumulations have caused numerous power outages, downed power lines, fallen trees and limbs, and difficult driving conditions throughout the Puget Sound region. The coaches and families representing the two PLU programs has been directly affected by these weather-related issues. "Family far outweighs a basketball game, so this wasn't a difficult decision to make," PLU men's basketball head coach Steve Dickerson said.

PLU's games scheduled for Saturday night against Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore., will be played as scheduled.
