Women's Hoops Arrives In (Frigid) East Lansing
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Three-foot snowbanks greeted the Washington Huskies upon landing at Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Mich., as did a blast of arctic air.
Welcome to December in the Midwest.
The Huskies are three games into their month-long road trip, which will canvass 8,648 miles through the air this month alone. They'll face No. 16 Michigan State on Saturday night at the Breslin Center.
Washington departed UW at 6:30 this morning, meandered through jam-packed security lines and then boarded a flight to Chicago's O'Hare Airport at 8:30. After a break, the team then took a small plane across Lake Michigan to Grand Rapids. Then it was a 61-mile bus ride to the East Lansing Marriott, right next to Michigan State's campus.
Then the team bussed the short distance to campus and practiced on one of the Spartans auxiliary courts. Dinner was waiting for the student-athletes back on the bus afterwards, and then some downtime at the hotel.
Keep it tuned to the Dawg Blawg and GoHuskies for all the insight from the Huskies trip to the Midwest.
