    Interesting that they'd see the need to move a woman's college game to a freakin stadium.

    The AP gamer lede may also belong on another thread here.

    Arizona State liked the gimmick. Now? Probably not so much.

    I am probably one of the few who has covered a rain delayed women's college basketball game before. It stormed so bad outside that the roof of the arena began leaking at two or three different areas of the court. It was 30-45 minutes before it eased up and the leaking stopped, and the team I was covering could finish receiving its 100-something to not very many ass whipping.

    Arizona State (10-1) beat Texas Tech 61-45 on Monday night when the second outdoor game in women's college basketball history was called on account of rain with 4:18 to play at Chase Field, home of baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks.

    "on account of."
    Sounds like my 11-year-old nephew wrote that.

    Yeah, I think they said that after UCLA played Houston in the Astrodome, too.

    I had that happen at a high school game once. We got about 10 inches of snow, then it warmed up to about 60 degrees and there was a downpour. Roof began leaking in about 10 places and was dripping right through one of the cylinders.

    Gym is closed now.
