I’m not sure if it’s ironic that a basketball game scheduled to be played aboard a ship was cancelled due to condensation, but that’s exactly what happened to the Buckeyes tonight. Scheduled to take on Marquette as part of the Carrier Classic on the USS Yorktown, officials could not keep water off the playing surface, exposing a dangerous option to the players, so officials of both teams agreed to cancel the contest.

Now the Buckeyes opening contest of the season will take place on Sunday in Columbus against Albany. Tip-off is set for 2:00 and the game will be televised by the B10 Network.
