Happy Thanksgiving From UW WBB
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Repeat it with us: no matter how it looks, don't understate the value of a road victory.
This was the post mortem discussion after the Huskies beat UC Santa Barbara, 46-37, on Wednesday night. Sure there are plenty of areas where the Dawgs struggled, but an away win against a quality Big West conference opponent is not something to take for granted.
So head coach Kevin McGuff let them enjoy it for a night. Then it was back to work early Thanksgiving afternoon, when the Huskies returned to the Thunderdome for a two-hour workout. The emphasis now was San Diego State, a physical, athletic team that should see time in the Top-25 rankings.
As for now, it's time for Study Hall and Thanksgiving dinner. The team is headed to manager Amanda Johnson's house in Manhattan Beach, Calif., where a sizeable feast awaits. Hard to beat the drive down on Highway 101, one of the most scenic roads in the world. After dinner, it's a late bus to San Diego and checking into a downtown hotel.
In the spirit of the holidays, GoHuskies.com talked with a few of our student-athletes to find out what they're thankful for this season.
Regina Rogers: I am thankful for my fifth year and being able to play with these wonderful coaches and my team this year.
Kristi Kingma: I am thankful for my family and that I get to play at a school close to home. And that I get another year with my wonderful teammates and coaches.
Mercedes Wetmore: I am thankful for my family and also being able to play close to home and play for one of the best universities in the country. I'm also thankful that everyone is mostly healthy.
Aminah Williams: I am thankful for my family and to be a part of such a great program with a great group of girls.
