Niagara Women's Basketball Team Is Still Stranded On Bus In Storm
Editors note: After being stuck for nearly 30 hours, state troopers have brought the women's basketball team to a nearby police station where another bus was waiting to take them back to campus, according to Niagara guard Tiffany Corselli said.
On Monday, the Niagara women’s basketball team lost to Pittsburgh 70-54 and fell to 0-2 on the season. And while the bus ride home was sure to be long and disappointing, no one could have predicted just how long and disappointing it would actually be. Mainly because, IT’S STILL HAPPENING.
The Purple Eagles left Pittsburgh around 10 p.m. on Monday, and three hours later hit the winter storm currently wreaking havoc on Western and Central New York and other nearby areas. According to WIVB, the team was completely stranded on the highway by 2 a.m. And as of noon today, the bus is STILL STRANDED and on the side of the road in West Seneca, New York.
For those of you keeping track at home: We have spent a total of 12 hours on the bus, 8 of those in the same exact position. #BuffaloSnow— Rene'e Polka (@rpolka24) November 18, 2014
On the plus side ladies, at least your bus has a bathroom. So at least you’ve got that going for you. But here’s to hoping rescue comes and helps all those stuck very soon.
