WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State says two men's basketball players were involved in a nine-vehicle pileup and that the women's team also crashed after freezing drizzle.
The Wichita Eagle reports that no players or coaches were injured in the Saturday night crashes in Wichita.
The Kansas Highway Patrol blamed the nine-vehicle pileup on slick conditions. University officials say 19-year-old Austin Reaves and 22-year-old Brett Barney continued on to dinner afterward. The crash happened after the Shockers beat Connecticut in Koch Arena. One person in another vehicle was taken to a hospital.
University officials say the bus carrying the Wichita State women's basketball team also was involved in an accident on the way to Koch Arena from Eisenhower National Airport.
