The Michigan basketball team had a scary incident on Wednesday afternoon when its plane skidded off the runway on the way to D.C. for the Big 10 tournament

No one onboard was injured but the plane suffered “extensive damage.” That apparently meant the team’s jerseys couldn’t make the trip, leaving the Wolverines with just their practice gear for Thursday’s game against Illinois.

The Illini will be wearing blue for the game, while Michigan is sporting yellow tops and blue shorts. The Michigan jerseys are reversible, though, if anyone wants to try to confuse the other team.
