Greetings From McCarthey Athletic Center
SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Washington women's basketball team woke up to snow flurries before heading over to Gonzaga's campus for shootaround.
Shootaround is not just for shaking out tired legs and getting a feel for the opposing gym. The players are also running through their selected offensive sets, knowing full well what they'll see from Gonzaga. Then guards and posts split up and get up a set number of shots from various points on the floor.
Thankfully, the trip here was uneventful. A quick, 55-minute flight out of Sea-Tac brought the Huskies to Spokane and then they bussed over to the hotel, checked in and walked across the street to Chili's for a team dinner (where just about everybody ordered baby-back ribs).
Seattle and Spokane are separated by only 280 miles, so a few parents have made the trip over to pass to offer their support. Mackenzie Argens was surprised by her family, who secretly made the trip and greeted her in the lobby.
One Husky, Jeneva Anderson, is from Spokane (played at Lewis & Clark High School), so she met with her family at Chili's for dinner.
For your morning reading, check out Jayda Evans' latest story in the Seattle Times. She writes about how Christina Rozier is dedicating this season to playing for friend & teammate Lydia Young, who sadly will not be able to play basketball this year after doctors recently discovered a serious knee condition.
