SEATTLE -- The Husky men's basketball team gathered on the main floor of Hec Edmundson Pavilion on Friday, fully dressed in their uniforms and ready to play. Problem is, their was no opponent present. It was picture day.
Redbox Pictures -- the official photographers of Husky athletics -- were on assignment to shoot various team shots, the team poster and individual photos for television and whatever promotions may come up throughout the season. Jon Horton, Washington's Director of Video and Multimedia Presentations, also kept the team busy shooting segments for in game videos.
It was a long morning with lots of smiling, laughing and good-natured ribbing. The public will have to wait awhile to see most of the fruits of labor, but a sneak peak of what several photos may look like are available for viewing in the photo gallery link above.
You may notice that Tyreese Breshers is in one of the photos. He is still a full-time member of the team, he just won't play and practice with the team.
The Huskies begin a full-slate of practices on Oct. 15 and will play their first exhibition game on Saturday, Nov. 6 against St. Martin's University.
