JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The men's basketball game between No. 10 Florida and Georgetown on the deck of a ship was called off at halftime Friday night because the court became too wet.

Florida led 27-23 at the break in the Navy-Marine Corps Classic when the game aboard the USS Bataan was stopped by the court condensation.

Earlier in the evening, the men's game between No. 4 Ohio State and Marquette on the USS Yorktown in South Carolina was canceled before it began for the same reason.

The Florida-Georgetown game will not count and will not be made up. The cancellations cast doubt on whether these outdoor games will continue in the future.
