Weather shuts down Chapel Hill Super Regional

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WACH/AP) -- Rain and bad weather from Tropical Storm Andrea has forced the postponement of Friday's opener between No. 1 overall seed North Carolina and South Carolina in their best-of-3 NCAA super regional series.

Games set for Saturday and Sunday afternoons in Chapel Hill will go on as scheduled. A possible third game is now scheduled for Monday. Saturday's game is slated to start at 12:05 p.m and Sunday's game is scheduled for a 1:05 p.m start.

In an update on its athletics web site, UNC said the NCAA and both schools "all agreed this was in the best interest of the student-athletes and fans."

In addition, Friday's super regional opener between host North Carolina State and Rice in Raleigh has been postponed to Saturday due to weather concerns.
