A plane carrying the Kansas University men’s basketball team reportedly suffered engine failure about 20 minutes after departing San Jose (SJC) on Sunday afternoon, causing the flight to return to SJC.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported.

This video, posted by Kansas University associate athletic director Ryan White, shows what appears to be sparks on the plane’s starboard side.

From what we can tell, it seems the flight was Swift Air 5093 from SJC to Topeka Regional (FOE).

The Kansas City Star reports the team spent Sunday night at a San Jose hotel. The number five ranked Jayhawks were in town playing the Stanford Cardinal, whom they defeated 72-56 on Sunday afternoon.
