The Saint Louis University men’s basketball team lost a game to St. Bonaventure — and then its bus. The Billikens walked out of the arena Wednesday night following the team’s 70-55 loss to the Bonnies, and their bus was nowhere to be found, said New York State Police Trooper James O’Callaghan. The driver, later identified as 56-year-old Linda Edmister of Gasport, New York, had taken off. State police said the bus was eventually stopped in Randolph, about 40 miles from the arena. Troopers said they were able to find it through GPS on an item left on the bus. School officials said the item was head coach Travis Ford’s iPad. “I’m not sure where their destination was after that. But yeah, it definitely wasn’t Randolph,” O’Callaghan said. They have to start vetting these bus drivers, thank goodness no one was hurt.-TO
