Call me old fashioned, but I would hate to play an official D-1 basketball game outdoors. Imagine hoisting up a potential game tying three pointer and having a gust of wind cause it to miss. It maybe funny during a pickup or exhibition game, but these games count.....

At Petco, if you're on offense, you have to beat two defenses: 1) the other team 2) Mother Nature.

Outdoors with a slight breeze maybe better than playing on an ice skating rink in Okinawa maybe? One or more of the Armed Forces tribute games has been played on the deck of an aircraft carrier in previous years. Although I think one of those was cancelled as well.

Sounds like it was a blunder off and on the court.

Watched this, it was a cool event put on by Bill Walton (best part: he didn't do the broadcast!!!) Of course they had the massive Christmas tree.. along with carnival rides just from what I could see. Also nice to see USD beat SDSU for the first time since 04 even thought they nearly completely COUGHED AWAY A 21 POINT LEAD IN 7 MINUTES!

That sucks. The game was delayed by a day because of SDSU's appearance in the MWC football championship game, but that's no excuse for the mistakes they made.
