Huskies Arrive In Pullman
A bracing wind greeted the Huskies after the team stepped off the airplane at Spokane International Airport. As frosty as the temps were in Seattle when the team took off, the conditions on the eastern side of the state were downright arctic.
Before making the trek down to Pullman, the Huskies stopped at a downtown Spokane mall to have dinner. As the bus made its exit off the highway, Spokane native Jeneva Anderson pointed out "the most dominant high school basketball program in the state" to her teammates - Lewis & Clark. This drew a lot of boos from her teammates, many of whom went to Seattle schools.
After dinner, the team settled into the bus for the 90-minute ride. Along the way, the Huskies watched an extended version of the highlight video that played during their team banquet last week. The elongated clips showed jumbotron snippets that are shown during halftime, video the team doesn't get to see because they're in the locker room.
When the team arrived in Pullman, the thermostat did them no favors. The temperature was a brisk -6 degrees, and the UW-issued parkas offered little resistance to the biting winds howling across the Palouse. Thankfully, the hotel offered plenty of heat.
The Huskies schedule for Saturday includes scout film on Washington State and then an hour of shootaround at Beasley Coliseum. Tip off tonight is at 5:30 p.m. (PST) and the game can be seen on FSN NW.
