Wisconsin basketball forced to make emergency landing after Maryland game

The Badgers were forced to stay overnight in Pittsburgh after plane troubles. Fortunately everybody is OK.

UPDATE, 6:05 p.m.: Early today, the Badgers landed safely in Madison.


Following Wisconsin's loss at Maryland on Tuesday, the Badgers had an engine malfunction in their team plane and were forced into an emergency landing in Pittsburgh.

The trouble apparently started when the plane door wouldn't close before leaving Baltimore.

No other details were available. The Badgers lost to the Terrapins 59-53, snapping their 10-game win streak.

Wisconsin next plays Sunday vs. Michigan State in Madison for Senior Day. Senior guard Traevon Jackson said earlier this week he plans to return from injury for the game, but he has yet to be medically cleared by the team.
