NCAA Basketball: Seton Hall at Providence Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Providence Friars and Seton Hall Pirates game Wednesday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center was suspended with 13 minutes to go in the second half due to unsafe court conditions.

Seton Hall had a 56-47 lead at the time of the suspension.

It was unseasonably warm in Providence on Wednesday. As a result, the ice under the court at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center was melting onto the court. Seton Hall’s Desi Rodriguez left with a knee injury in the first half, and did not return. Players from both teams slipped multiple times throughout the second half leading to the eventual postponement.

The game will be completed Thursday afternoon at Providence’s Alumni Hall.
