SEATTLE – Washington women’s basketball has a big weekend in front of them, hosting Oregon and Oregon State for the final home conference games of the season. The Dawgs will be celebrating Alumni Weekend with special events for Friday’s 6 p.m. game with the Ducks and Sunday’s 2 p.m. game with the Beavers.
Friday versus Oregon, fans are encouraged to wear black as the Dawgs try to “Black Out” the Ducks. The first 100 fans will receive free “Black Out” t-shirts as Washington looks to defeat its rival to the South. Following the game, Husky players will sign autographs on the floor for fans. It will be the last chance for Husky fans to get player autographs due to the senior celebration after Sunday’s game.
Friday is also Dawg Pack Appreciation Night. Students are encouraged to wear black and arrive early as the first 50 students in attendance will receive a concession voucher and a limited edition Husky Women's Basketball "Black Out" t-shirt.
Sunday will be a double-feature with former Husky Letterwinners taking part in the Alumni Game preceding the 2 p.m. tip with Oregon State. Fans will be allowed in the arena at 10:45 a.m. to watch the alumni game that begins at 11 a.m. To attend the alumni game, fans need a ticket to the UW game with Oregon State. Immediately following Sunday’s game, the Dawgs will have an on-court celebration for seniors Mercedes Wetmore and Kassia Fortier. All Western Washington Girl Scouts 8th grade and under will receive free general admission by wearing their Girl Scout apparel for this game as well.
