Final Four: UConn leaves 6 hours late for Arizona after plane malfunction

UConn is the overwhelming favorite to win the men’s Final Four this weekend, but it ran into a formidable foe on Wednesday: air travel.

The Huskies men’s team faced a travel delay of six hours due to mechanical issues with their scheduled charter plane to Phoenix, Arizona. They were initially supposed to leave Storrs, Connecticut at 6 p.m. ET, but ended up leaving at midnight.

The defending champions are reportedly scheduled to land around 1:45 a.m. local time.
