Earlier this week, the Niagara women's basketball team played Pittsburgh where they lost 70-54 and are now 0-2 for the season.
On the way back, their trip was not smooth, to say the least, when a major lake effect snow storm fell in western New York. Several feet of snow fell, as in over four feet.
As a result, the team was stranded on I-90 Tuesday morning for over 24 hours from Tuesday to Wednesday when they were finally rescued by state police. Niagara head coach Kendra Faustin gave a video interview to ESPN which is embedded above.The interview was actually given while they were stranded. And you can also view a Twitter Timeline here from espnW.com and from a FanShot that Bull Run's Matt Gritzmacher posted.
I have definitely seen my fair share of snowstorms living near the nation's capital, including the Snowpacalypse and Snowmageddon storms that fell in the Winter of 2009-2010. But none of those storms dumped four or five feet, and I've never been stranded. Glad to see that everyone was safe, and this was definitely a team-bonding exercise given that they literally spent an entire day on the bus.
