​The No. 25 Washington Huskies took on the No. 11 ​Auburn Tigers Friday night in one of ​college basketball's early ranked matchups to begin the season. Auburn went on to win fairly convincingly, 88-66, and things continued to get worse for UW in their postgame travels. Washington's team bus caught on fire and Huskies senior forward Noah Dickerson caught footage of the engulfed vehicle: 

​​The fire came at a result of a blown tire and occurred roughly 15 miles outside of Montgomery, Alabama. A school spokesperson stated that there were no injuries, even though players were forced to evacuate the bus. 


We even have Dickerson to confirm that for us: 

The ​Huskies were forced to wait on the side of the road at 1:30 a.m. so that another bus could take the team to the airport for its flight back to Seattle. 


Dickerson and his teammates inspiringly made fun out of the unfortunate, near-tragic situation. 

Kudos to Dickerson and his teammates for remaining optimistic and looking at the world as a glass half full, not empty. Just hours after a blowout loss, their team buses catch on fire, and their demeanor remains sky-high. That's the beauty of a healthy locker room.
