Action-Packed Weekend At UW
Not sure what your holiday weekend plans entail -- outside of Black Friday shopping and leftover turkey sandwiches -- but for those with an empty calendar there is plenty going on with athletics at the University of Washington.
Starting tonight, the No. 4 ranked volleyball team is in action against Oregon State at Bank of America Arena. The team is chasing a Pac-10 title and are closer to finding out their postseason destination.
On Friday, the Washington women's basketball team is hosting their annual Husky Classic at Bank of America. They'll play games against a pair of Big Sky schools in Eastern Washington and Sacramento State; same with the University of Memphis. First tip gets underway at 12 p.m., with the Hornets and Tigers. The Huskies and Eagles (who are separated by just 266 miles), will follow 20 minutes after the first game.
And then later that night, volleyball is back on the court for a matchup with No. 18 Oregon.
Of course, we should not have to remind you what's happening on Saturday at Husky Stadium. Washington's football team will take part in the 102nd Apple Cup. Come early, be loud and support the Huskies against their rivals from Pullman. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
On Sunday, come on back to Bank of America for a triple-header of basketball. The Husky Classic will wrap up with a preliminary game between EWU and Memphis, and then the Huskies will play Sac. State to cap the tournament. Then at 6 p.m., the men's basketball team will take on Montana.
To recap, that's two volleyball matches, a football game and three basketball games for us this week...whew.
