Sources told that Friday's Syracuse-San Diego State basketball game scheduled to be played on the deck of the USS Midway will be moved to Sunday at 4 p.m. Eastern Time.

The official announcement of the date change should come at 7 p.m. today, sources said. At that point, any further logistical information should be available.

The game originally was scheduled to tip off on the retired aircraft carrier docked in San Diego Harbor at 5 p.m. Pacific Time, before the National Weather Service predicted a 75 percent chance of showers in San Diego between 4 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Saturday.

The Sunday forecast for San Diego is more conducive with temperatures in the high 60s, with winds of 8 mph and no chance for rain.

SU guard Brandon Triche sent out a message on Twitter that has since been deleted. "San Diego game is pushed back to sunday due to rain :((((((," the tweet said.
