RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The University of Richmond's basketball team won their big game this weekend, but the Spiders were no match for "Old Man Winter." The snow storm stranded the entire team in New Jersey until late Monday night.

The basketball team knocked off Seton Hall on Sunday 69 to 61.

The team was scheduled to fly out of Newark Airport at 7pm Sunday night, but Mother Nature had other plans.

After spending an extra night at a hotel in New Jersey the team took a bus back to Richmond. The players and coaches were very happy to back on campus. The team arrived back on campus at 8pm Monday night -- that's 24 hours after the group of 30 was scheduled to arrive back at the University of Richmond.
