Los Angeles: Huskies Base For Next 10 Days
Rain and fog set the scene in Los Angeles when the Huskies plane touched down at LAX last night, ensuring plenty of jokes from Angelenos that we brought the Seattle weather with us.
L.A. will be the team's home for what could amount to 10 more days, as Washington has games at UCLA & USC, followed by the Pac-10 Tournament. This was a popular topic with media members leading up to the trip, many asking how the team would stay focused with the challenge of spending so many days away from UW.
But the Huskies know this is a business trip, albeit an extended one. Six possible games are in play for Washington, and that's the focus going forward.
Interesting enough, the Huskies shared their flight to LAX with their rivals from Washington State. Off the court, though, the players are always friendly and cordial with one another. For example, Mercedes Wetmore chatted with former Auburn-Riverside teammates Ireti Amojo and Katie Grad.
A slight weather delay meant the team had lights out not long after arriving at the team hotel. Plenty of sunshine greeted them the next day, particularly when the team bussed out to Westwood for shootaround at UCLA. Considering the number of former Bruins players and coaches making the trip, there were plenty of visitors afterward who stopped by to say hello.
