Virginia-Wake is ON (and FREE) (Updated)

Tony Bennett says IT'S ON!The Atlantic Coast Conference men's basketball game between Wake Forest and Virginia will be played as scheduled at John Paul Jones Arena on Saturday (Feb. 6). The game is scheduled to begin at noon and will be televised by Raycom. The game will be FREE for all students, faculty and staff with ID, plus 3 guests each.

ACC protocol indicates games should be played if both teams and two of the three game officials have arrived at the site. The Wake Forest team is in Charlottesville as are the three game officials.

"We are following ACC protocol and Saturday's game will be played," said Virginia Athletics Director Craig Littlepage. "Fans should make certain they can get safely to the game before making the decision to attend in these weather conditions. We encourage fans having to travel by car to stay at home and watch the game on television."

Reserved garage parking passes will be honored in the parking garage at the arena. All other reserved parking pass holders will be asked to park in the West lot. The South, East and Cage parking lots are open to general admission parking for Saturday's game.

The fan shuttle from the North Grounds parking area will not be in operation on Saturday.

Virginia Tech's men's basketball game with Clemson in Blacksburg will also be played as scheduled on Saturday.
