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:

Duquesne coach Jim Ferry texted ESPN's Andy Katz that the bus is approximately 80 miles from Pittsburgh and that "We r holding up. Bus is warm. Everyone is tired."

The Duquesne Athletics Twitter account said they were "safe on warm bus" at about 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, after nine hours in the same spot.

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:
