Coaches held in Maryland

Shutdown of commercial flights leaves Davis and Thomas stranded out of state

Two members of the men's basketball coaching staff were stuck in Maryland Tuesday night following the national tragedies in New York and Washington.\nHead coach Mike Davis and assistant coach Jim Thomas traveled to Maryland on a recruiting trip and planned to return Tuesday. But the shutdown of all commercial flights across the country left them stranded. Davis and Thomas attempted to rent a car Tuesday, but were unable to do so until Wednesday morning, when they drove back to Indiana. \nAs a result of Tuesday's events, the Hoosiers, who were in the midst of group workouts, are not working out this week and were unavailable for comment. \nGroup workouts began Aug. 28 and will continue next week. IU's first official practice will be at midnight Oct. 12.
