Huskies Have (Finally, Whew) Arrived In Corpus Christi
After a long travel day, the Huskies are in the middle of practice Texas A&M Corpus Christi's gym. It took Washington almost 15 hours from Seattle to South Texas, which included a flight up to Vancouver, B.C., a 3-hour wait, and then a long flight to Houston.
Director of Operations Wingate Smith filled us in on all the info this morning, and gave GoHuskies some insight into the travel schedule.
"I mean it was long. Took forever to get here. Had to go through customs twice," Smith said. "Hung out in the Vancouver airport, one of the top 3 airports of all time."
While in Canada, the Huskies took advantage of the free Wi-Fi in the airport to catch up on the NCAA Tournament, which CBS streams online for free. Other players took naps and made sure to rest adequately, knowing there would be a short turnaround time with the game today (2 p.m. PST).
Once on the flight to Houston, the Dawgs watched their men's team thump New Mexico with Continental Airlines providing all passengers with personal DirecTV in their seats.
When the team landed, it was time to gather luggage and jump on the bus to Corpus Christi, a four-hour ride. Smith said the team watched a couple of movies on the ride down, and then hit the hotel and went directly to bed.
The Huskies game will be streamed online through KKNW. Fans can also follow on the women's basketball Twitter feed (@uw_wbb) and the feed for the local paper, The Corpus Christi Caller-Times (@callersports).
