Women's Hoops Alum Hoop It Up At BOA
It was Team Purple versus Team White at Bank of America Arena on Saturday morning as legends from the Washington women's basketball played in their biennial alumni game.
Purple won the game, 55-53, on a late 3-pointer from Michelle Augustavo, who is just a year removed from her letterwinner days here at UW. Augustavo is currently an intern for the Seattle University women's basketball team.
There was good representation from the alums, with the overall total hovering between 40-50 Husky greats. The event was held in conjunction with the Storm's "Winter Warm Up," which features a Q&A with coach Brian Agler. Storm CEO Karen Bryant was also in attendance, and participated as a coach.
A sample of alumni who attended was Jamie Redd, Loree Payne (currently an assistant coach), Rhonda Smith, Megan Franza, Tara Davis and Kayla Burt. But all eras from the Husky program were represented.
After the game, the alumni and the Storm contingent gathered upstairs in the Founders Club for a lunch. The alum were later introduced during halftime of the Huskies game against Washington State.
Before the game, the program also held its silent auction, where fans bid on a variety of special items, such as dinner with Coach Tia Jackson or round-trip airfare to the Scandinavian
countries, where the team will play a foreign trip in 2011.
