Friday’s scheduled Gotham Classic game between Temple and Detroit at the Liacouras Center has been postponed due to weather conditions.

The matchup will be rescheduled for a later date.

Detroit (7-5) was unable to travel to Philadelphia due to the weather conditions in the Midwest combined with the wind conditions in the Philadelphia area.

As a result, Temple (9-2) doesn't play until Monday’s home game against Bowling Green.
