Weather and a search for a substitute referee almost derailed Notre Dame's men's basketball home game against St. John's tonight.
But despite South Bend getting hit with more than three feet of snow, a new ref was able to get in for the game and the Irish and Red Storm will tip off at 8 p.m. in Purcell Pavilion as scheduled.
The university released a statement at 5:24 p.m. warning fans to adhere to weather and travel warnings before deciding to come to the game. And parking is limited around the arena because of the snow.
The game is televised on ESPNU and can be seen on ESPN3.com.
