The Michigan Wolverines were expected to be in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday afternoon to prepare for their Big Ten Tournament second-round game against Illinois.
But severe winds in Michigan forced the team airplane off the runway during takeoff.
No players or staff members were injured in the accident, but according to the official release, a few people were "banged up."
That accident forced the team to delay their travel, taking off at 7:00 a.m. on Thursday morning and arriving in Washington, D.C. around 8:45 a.m.

That would leave them very little time to practice or prepare for their 12:00 p.m. game vs. the No. 9-seed Illini.
When the Wolverines did finally arrive to Verizon Center and take the court for their game, the team looked different.

The Wolverines were forced to wear their practice jerseys for the tournament game because their game jerseys remained stuck on the airplane.
The winner of the No. 8 Wolverines vs. No. 9 Illini game will take on No. 1 Purdue at noon on Friday.
