Coastal Carolina's Bus Stuck on the Interstate in a Snowstorm

Joshua S. Kelly-USA TODAY Sports

The Chanticleers were stuck in a bus for over twelve hours on Thursday thanks to snowy conditions on highways in North Carolina.

I don't know if Coastal Carolina head coach Cliff Ellis is good friends with Southern Illinois coach Barry Hinson or not, but now the two have something in common and it's not a ridiculous press conference. The Chanticleers bus was stuck for at least 12 hours yesterday on I-74 outside of Mount Airy, North Carolina as the team was coming back from their win at VMI.

Don't worry guys help is on the way!

At least the Chanticleers tried to have a little fun with situation and get some national publicity:

Interestingly enough, Longwood pushed their game up Wednesday against Winthrop to 4 PM while VMI, which is about 90 miles from Longwood decided to keep tip-off at 7 PM the same night.

The Chanticleers 83-78 win over VMI put them in sole possession of first place in the Big South's South Division. The Chants host Gardner-Webb on Saturday, a team they beat in Boiling Spring last month.
