Syracuse women’s basketball’s home-opener has been delayed for unknown reasons.

Shortly before the game was set to tip at 6 p.m., officials could be seen wiping the court with several towels. Players and coaching staffs from both teams went back into their respective locker rooms.

It’s the first snow of the year since the university finished its new $118 million renovation of the roof and other parts of the Carrier Dome. The roof leaked Oct. 10 during a football game against Duke. School officials said they were still working to seal the roof.

University sports information officials refused to explain the delay.

More to come.
