Final Home Weekend For Women's Hoops & Sarah Morton
Sarah Morton is an understandably big focus for the Washington women's basketball program this weekend. The senior will play her final two home games of her career against the Arizona schools, and she's admitted that emotion might get the best of her this weekend.
There have been a couple of noteworthy features on Morton, and we'll start with Gregg Bell's (GoHuskies.com Director of Writing) excellent piece on Morton's decision to stay for Tia Jackson's inaugural season at the UW.
"Once I signed, I was a Husky for life," Morton said. "I always wanted to come here. I love the school. I liked the girls on the team. It was close to my family. There were more aspects than just basketball. And when I met Coach J, I knew I liked her from Day One."
Next up is Jayda Evans' piece in the Seattle Times on Morton and how she headlines the Huskies' brand of basketball - toughness, grit and physical play.
"She's the first four-year player that's gone through the system with me and just to see her growth ... she's been tremendous," Jackson said.
Scott Johnson of the Everett Herald also chimed in with an excellent article on not only Morton's final home stand but the importance of the WBCA "Pink Zone" game to Coach Jackson, who last year dealt with the death of her mentor to lymphoma.
