Women's Hoops Arrives In Tampa
TAMPA, Fla. -- The Washington women's basketball team has bunkered down at their hotel following a long flight from Sea-Tac to Orlando. A tail wind cut the trip to a brisk 4 hours and 50 minutes.
It's still up in the air whether jet lag will be a factor, with the Huskies having to set their clocks forward three hours. By the time the team picked up their luggage and boarded the bus for Tampa, the time was already 10:30 p.m. (EST). Factor in a stop by Pizza Hut for a late dinner and the 90-mile drive down Interstate-4 -- which featured a ridiculously bad Sandra Bullock comedy on the screens -- and it was nearly 12:30 before everyone received their hotel keys and roommate assignments. The team is staying at the Hilton Garden Inn next to the University of South Florida.
Because of the hectic travel, the Huskies will have a light schedule tomorrow. Following breakfast at the hotel, the team will bus over to campus and practice at the Sun Dome in preparation for Friday night's game against the Bulls. Fans can listen to the game on 1150 AM KKNW in the Seattle-area or the online stream.
