It took 45 minutes for the game to get underway again. Meanwhile, the power remains out in parts of the building and all across the rest of the campus. A university employee says a transformer blew affecting an entire grid. The wifi went down as well and at last check, still has not been restored.

Officials announced the center’s bathrooms have been closed because of pressure issues related to the outage.
