Better to err on the side of caution.

School officials in Wayne and Johnston County cancelled all basketball games Friday evening, but the frozen mix precipitation predicted to blanket each county never materialized.

Five contests involving teams in the News-Argus readership area were either rescheduled for this week or late January. Here are the make-up dates announced late Friday afternoon:

• Jan. 13 -- Ayden-Grifton at Rosewood

• Jan. 19 -- Princeton at Spring Creek

• Jan. 26 -- Goldsboro at North Duplin

• Jan. 26 -- C.B. Aycock at Eastern Wayne

No information was provided for the Southern Wayne-South Johnston cancellation.

The 11th annual Falcon Invitational started an hour later Saturday morning at Charles B. Aycock. The Golden Falcons, Eastern Wayne and Southern Wayen competed in the 16-team event, which is the second longest-running individual tournament in county history.

Complete results will appear in Monday's print edition of the News-Argus.

Rosewood, Princeton and Goldsboro competed in the Carolina-4 Rivers 1-A Conference Duals at Ayden-Grifton on Saturday. Opening-round matches were pushed to the afternoon. Details will be available in Monday's print edition of the News-Argus.
