OKLAHOMA CITY -- The NCAA postponed the two games scheduled at the Women's College World Series on Friday night because of severe weather. The Huskies game with Tennessee is rescheduled for 9am Saturday.
Tennessee had been scheduled to play Washington, with top-seeded Oklahoma facing rival Texas on Friday night in winner's bracket games. The original plans called for four elimination games to be played Saturday, which also will play into the rescheduling plan.
The teams involved were staying away from Hall of Fame Stadium and sought shelter in a downtown parking garage near their hotels. Washington team spokeswoman Alyssa Olveda said six of the eight teams gathered in the same hotel tunnel and parking garage downtown to ride out the storm.
Representatives from Tennessee, Oklahoma and Texas also said they left their downtown hotels to seek shelter at the Cox Convention Center, which has an underground parking garage that connects through tunnels to downtown Oklahoma City.
