Sources: George Washington's game against UMass postponed due to D.C. curfew

The chaos at the United States Capitol on Wednesday afternoon has spilled over into the sports world.

George Washington’s men’s basketball game against the University of Massachusetts, scheduled for 6 p.m. ET Wednesday in Washington D.C., has been postponed, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports.

A source told Yahoo Sports that the reasoning for the game being off was the 6 p.m. curfew announced by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

The curfew came in the wake of supporters of President Donald Trump storming the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon.

There has been no immediate word if or when the game between George Washington (3-7) and UMass (2-3) would be rescheduled.
