Deflategate II delays Boston University men's basketball game
Sunday January 25th, 2015

As if the city of Boston hadn't had enough to deal with from Deflategate this week, Saturday's game between Bucknell and Boston University was delayed to an over-inflated basketball.

After dribbling the ball before the game's opening tip, a referee turned to some Bucknell players for a second opinion on the basketball's level of inflation. Eventually, the decision was made to replace the ball with another, slightly delaying tip-off.

Bucknell ended up winning 92-77 for its fourth straight win. The Bison (11-10, 6-2 Patriot) are tied with Colgate for first place in the Patriot League.
