SAN DIEGO (AP) - The basketball game between No. 9 Syracuse and No. 20 San Diego State on the flight deck of the decommissioned USS Midway has been moved from Friday night to Sunday afternoon due to a strong chance of rain.
The new tipoff time is 1 p.m. Sunday.
Officials said there was a 75 percent chance of rain Friday night, and that moving the game to Sunday was preferable to playing it Friday night at a sports arena.
San Diego State has moved it scheduled game against San Diego Christian from Sunday night to Tuesday night.
The threat of rain is one of the biggest obstacles facing organizers of games on aircraft carriers. It began pouring less than an hour after last year's Carrier Classic between North Carolina and Michigan State on the USS Carl Vinson on San Diego Bay.
