Winter storm could wreak havoc on travel plans

Mar 4, 2013 |
Old Man Winter isn’t done wreaking havoc on the travel plans of collegiate and professional sports teams just yet.

Significant snowfall will make travel dangerous Monday night and Tuesday in the Upper Midwest, especially around major cities like Minneapolis, Indianapolis and Chicago, which is expected to get its biggest snowfall of the season — as much as 10 inches by Tuesday evening.

The storm will then track east towards Maryland and could cause significant travel delays.

Here are a few teams that could have their travel plans altered because of the storm:


Utah Jazz – The Jazz are in Milwaukee Monday night and need to get to Cleveland for their next road game with the Cavs on Wednesday.

Boston Celtics – Boston is in Philadelphia Tuesday night and has to board a plane immediately for Indiana for a clash with the Pacers on Wednesday.


Minnesota Wild – The Wild hosted the Oilers Sunday and visit the red-hot Blackhawks in Chicago Tuesday night.


St. John’s and Ohio St. could have travel delays/issues Tuesday. The Red Storm are at Notre Dame and the Buckeyes visit Indiana.

North Carolina could also face delays in its travels to Maryland for a game on Wednesday.
