Stanford-Arizona Game Postponed After Shootings

TUCSON, Ariz. (CBS/AP) — The University of Arizona has postponed its men’s basketball game against Stanford scheduled for Saturday afternoon in the wake of the shootings of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others in Tucson.

School officials say the game has been rescheduled for Sunday at 12:30 p.m. MST.

Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne says “the university feels the game should be delayed with deep respect to the victims and families impacted by this tragedy.”
