Niagara women's hoops team stranded by storm

BY foxsports • November 18, 2014

The Niagara women's basketball team has been stuck on the highway in its bus for nearly 24 hours because of a winter storm that dumped 4 feet of snow around Buffalo and killed four people.

Coach Kendra Faustin said that everyone is OK and the team is in good spirits, but they are running low on food and water.

The team was coming back late Monday night from its game against Pittsburgh when they were stranded. Faustin said they have been in touch with the state police a few times, but haven't had any help yet.

Faustin said that the team has been using social media to keep others up on their plight.

There are 25 players and coaches aboard the bus as well as Faustin's 1-year-old son. Faustin said that a few other stranded motorists have come on board.
