Penn State Hoops’ Bus Stalls, Gets Into Accident On Way To Big Ten Tournament Game

Penn State men’s basketball had a few issues getting to Madison Square Garden for its quarterfinal matchup with Ohio State Friday night in the Big Ten Tournament.

On the way to the game, the team’s bus stalled out on its way to the arena, then made contact with the bumper of another car, BTN reported on the game broadcast.

No one was injured in the minor accident, but the driver of the other car in the fender bender certainly wasn’t happy. He followed the team bus down to 33rd Street and made contact with the bus again. The driver allegedly got out of the car and continued to challenge the bus driver.

The bus then stalled out for a second time just short of the loading dock where players and coaches usually depart from their bus. The Nittany Lions weren’t waiting around at that point, walking the final block to the arena in the rain.

“This dude out of nowhere smashed into us twice. I’ve never seen anything like it. Then he just chased us down. Hilarious. You know what, it’s a memory,” head coach Pat Chambers said on BTN.
