(Storrs, CT) -- Delta Air Lines is accused of canceling a flight full of paying customers so the University of Florida men's basketball team could fly to Connecticut. The "Gainesville Sun" reports the team's charter plane was grounded on Sunday afternoon because of maintenance issues. The Gators were headed to Storrs for last night's game. A Delta spokesman tells the paper he was not aware passengers were displaced and said about 35 people with the team were on the 50 seat plane.
