Duquesne bus gets stuck in blizzard

Traveling back to Pittsburgh after its Friday game at George Mason, Duquesne's team bus got stuck on the Pennsylvania Turnpike due to the blizzard that has been affecting most of the East Coast this weekend.

According to ESPN:

UPDATE: As of 7:30 p.m., Duquesne is finally on the move after sitting on the interstate for 22 hours. It took 15 players, coaches and staff members to push the bus:
