Century-St. Mary's BBB postponed due to slippery floor

Posted: Updated:
Bismarck, ND -

    Its early in the regular season for basketball, we all know that.
    But that doesn't stop us from getting excited to watch the two best teams in the West battle.
    Both Century and St. Mary's come in undefeated at 5 and 0...but this game, was all hype no action...

    The game was postponed with 8 minutes left in the 1st half.
    The floor was called unplayable, it was slippery and wet from humidity in the completely packed gymnasium.
    How fitting for the aquarium, they call the shark tank...
    So the game of the day, became the game that wasn't.

Brent De Kok: "Emotional our kids were jacked up out here in warm ups getting things going and then the decision was made at that point to go downstairs and sit and wait. Try to let the floors get a little bit clean at that point. To come back out again and start 10 minutes with a warm up then play for 5 minutes. It's a very big rivalry. Two 5 and 0 teams and guys were ready to play. It's unfortunate we couldn't do it tonight but like I said before it's a safety issue and it's great we just need to keep these kids healthy and safe. "

    Who's leading you ask?
    St. Mary's leads Century 21-20 with 8:14 left in the first half, this game is postponed, and they have not yet decided on a finishing date.
