Once again, we wish the Dukes the best, and hope that they can finish the trip home as soon, and as safely, as possible.

Earlier: After beating George Mason 86-75 on Friday, the Duquesne Dukes men's basketball team quickly left Virginia for Pittsburgh, in an attempt to beat the large snow storm that hit the East Coast. They were not able to complete the ~250 mile drive before getting stuck in the storm on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The team bus was stranded overnight on the highway, and has been there for over 12 hours. Luckily, it seems like everyone is staying in high spirits, based on the team's Twitter activity.
