Outside, flurries dance in the headlights as roadside reflectors flash like car turn signals. Yellow weed stalks, evidence of a recent thaw, peek through the white blanket along the highway. Pockets of dense fog envelop the bus, visibility measured in yards for perilous moments before thankfully clearing. The players are oblivious to the cold world outside. Their only concern is finding co...Keep on reading: Travel an extra grind for Division I’s smallest schools.....»»

Of course, that is before they win a potential title. "TNT has always been under the radar, which is good, but not being talked about doesn't mean we cannot contend," said Racela Thursday in a message from Lithuania.
