The question about travel logistics is answered:


Now the team flies on a charter plane that specifically is tasked with flying the men's and women's basketball teams around the country for road trips. The charter flights are funded by alumni donations and Gonzaga's travel fund.

The team is expected to land in Buffalo late this afternoon and hold a closed practice at a local gym.

What did the reporter mean, "some on crutches"?

I'm glad they have a direct flight, but I'm pretty sure GU won't be on their normal plane. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it isn't big enough to add the band & cheerleaders.

I don't have a link, but other posters here could probably post a pix in about 30 seconds. IIRC, the regular plane is big enough for the team & coaches, with maybe a few extra seats set aside if a big donor or two want to ride. Maybe 30 seats?

I saw some beautiful planes in Vegas about that size (some even bigger) but I didn't see one that had anthing to identify it as the Gonzaga plane...."the rich are different than you or I "...or at least I...
