The Huskies were stranded on the side of the road after midnight in Alabama after their team bus caught fire on their way home from an 88-66 loss to No. 11 Auburn.
A rough night got worse for the Washington men’s basketball team.
Following an 88-66 loss at No. 11 Auburn on Friday, the 25th-ranked Huskies were forced to evacuate their team bus when it blew a tire and caught fire about 15 miles outside of Montgomery, Ala. where the team was scheduled to take a charter flight home to Seattle.
A UW spokesperson said no one was injured.
The team waited on the side of the road at 1:30 a.m. for another bus to take them to the airport. Their flight was originally scheduled to land at 5 a.m.
