CHARLOTTESVILLE — Sammy Zeglinski was heartbroken after getting the news from Ronnie Wideman, Tony Bennett’s right-hand man.
Or maybe not.
“I’m so happy,” the sophomore guard said Thursday evening at John Paul Jones Arena. “I had an 8 a.m. [class] tomorrow.”
Zeglinski and the rest of the UVa student body can sleep in Friday. With another major snowstorm headed for Central Virginia, the University announced that Friday classes have been cancelled.
The men’s basketball team got word from Wideman after practice Thursday.
“Ronnie came in and said he had some bad news,” sophomore swingman Sylven Landesberg said, “and I thought the bad news was the game was cancelled. He said it was just no classes.”
UVa (5-2, 14-6) is scheduled to host ACC rival Wake Forest (5-3, 15-5) at noon Saturday at JPJ. As of Thursday night, the game was still on.
With no Friday classes, Landesberg said he’s looking forward to a “good day of rest, but I hope we get to play.”
