The Louisville men’s basketball team, flying to Tampa, Fla. on a charter plane, had to return back to Louisville and make an emergency landing at 4:15 p.m. EST on Tuesday afternoon.

It was reported that there was a fire inside the engine of the plane.

Cardinals athletic director Kenny Klein said there were no injuries, and the 41 members of the team that were on the plane walked off unharmed.

Klein said the team expects to travel later tonight for the Wednesday game against South Florida.
