SEATTLE - The 2010 Washington women's basketball team wants to remind fans that they will hold their end-of-the-season banquet on April 12 at 6 p.m. at Maggiano's in Bellevue.
While pre-registration tickets to the event are sold out, there will be a limited amount of walk-up tickets available for fans who wish to attend the event. Table reservations are $60 a person, or $480 for a group of eight. Fans with questions should contact Husky Special Events by calling (206) 685-3729.
This past season, the Huskies garnered their first postseason event in three years with a selection to the Women's Basketball Invitational (WBI). Washington advanced to the quarterfinals before falling at Texas A&M Corpus Christi last month.
Third-year coach Tia Jackson will be on-hand to honor the program's five seniors and distribute awards for Team MVP, Heart & Hustle, Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player, Tyee Sports Council Community Service and the Kayla Burt Most Inspirational Player Award. There will also be awards given for statistical achievements, such as the Lion's Club Assist Award and the Big Dawg Award, given annually to the team's leading rebounder.
