The Miami-Boston College basketball game scheduled for Sunday night was postponed due snow and travel conditions.

The game will be made up on Monday at 3 p.m. at the Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill.

On Saturday night, BC announced the women’s game — scheduled Sunday afternoon — against North Carolina State was postponed.

Boston College announced the cancellations on its website.

“Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our players, students, fans and the game personnel,” BC athletic director Brad Bates said in a statement. “We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation.”

About 12-16 inches of snow fell in the area overnight into Sunday morning.

The Hurricanes didn’t let the postponement damper their moods.  The team played their own pickup game on Sunday, but there was no orange ball or glass backboards.

Miami played a game of ballroom baseball in their hotel to pass the time.  Perhaps they were inspired by the Hurricanes baseball team, who completed an opening weekend 4-game sweep of Rutgers on Sunday by the score of 25-4 back in sunny Coral Gables.

The Canes basketball team is looking to get back on track after dropping four of their last five games.  They currently sit with a 15-9 record, including a 5-6 mark inside the ACC.
