Close call

The Washington men's basketball team got a scare when its team bus blew a tire and caught fire Friday night after the Huskies' 88-66 loss at No. 11 Auburn.

Washington senior forward Noah Dickerson posted a video of the team bus on his Twitter account Saturday morning. In another tweet, he wrote that "everybody's OK."

According to the Times, the Huskies were forced to wait on the side of the road at 1:30 a.m. so that another bus could take the team to the airport for its flight back to Seattle.

Their original flight, according to the Seattle Times, was schedule to land at 5 a.m. PT – 8 a.m. ET – back in Seattle. 

So the bus fire, presumably, made an already long night even longer.
