Late night for North Carolina

The North Carolina basketball team experienced firsthand the gridlock caused by the wintry conditions.

The Tar Heels, in town to play Georgia Tech Wednesday night, landed in Atlanta around 11 p.m. Tuesday. Rather than try to travel by bus on the gridlocked interstate, the team took MARTA to the team hotel, with the last member of the traveling party arriving at 1:45 a.m., according to the team’s Twitter account.

The game was still on as of 10:45 a.m. ACC policy dictates that a game will be played so long as both teams and officials can reach the arena safely.
