Wisconsin team plane forced to make emergency landing
The No. 5 Badgers lost to the Terrapins, 59-53, and were forced to spend the night in Pittsburgh.
The team said Wednesday morning that a replacement plane was delayed and its bus to the airport broke down.
Update from Pittsburgh: Think we have a plane but it's delayed in S.C. Thought we had a bus to airport but it broke down. Of course it did.— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) February 25, 2015
The plane eventually arrived in Pittsburgh and the Badgers boarded their flight early Wednesday afternoon.
A few hours later they were finally back in Madison.
The loss was Wisconsin's third of the season and snapped a 10-game winning streak. The Badgers have three games left in the regular season, beginning with Sunday's matchup with Michigan State at home.
