Niagara Women’s Basketball team gets rescued, everyone is safe

What a nice story to wake up to.

At around 4 a.m. Eastern time came a simple four word tweet.

Of course, everyone on the bus had to make a stop at the nearby police station to file the necessary paperwork.  One dramatic pic of the bus from WBKW, Eyewitness News Channel 7 shows clearly the unrelenting snow is simply jaw dropping:


Bottom line:

After nearly 25 hours being stranded, everyone is back on campus safe and sound!

You can add a different group to the list of heroes, as the Niagara University women’s basketball team and staff showed true perseverance and lots of courage in extremely difficult and dangerous circumstances.

Hopefully, the other people that were stranded on that 132 mile chunk of the New York Thruway eventually get rescued.

Back to my regular fun blogging the best of college basketball as the early in-season Thanksgiving holiday tournaments kick into high gear in the coming days.
