Huskies Arrive In Eugene
Dec. 31, 2009
1:54 PM: The Dawgs have FINALLY made it to Eugene after a five-hour bus ride from the Washington campus. The trip was uneventful, outside of some traffic in central Oregon when we witnessed an Oregon State Trooper get into a single-car accident. Yikes. He appeared okay, but the squad car certainly wasn't.
In Albany, Ore., the team stopped for lunch at a complex featuring all the common fast-food eateries. Most went for Panda Express and the deli counter at the local Safeway. Also, it appears Oregon is about to play in some big football game because just about everyone we've seen so far is wearing the school's athletic apparel.
Right now, the team is practicing on Mac Court. There is a little bit of nostalgia as this is the final time the Huskies will play on the court. Next year, the Ducks are moving into a new gym. Knowing that Oregon is a fast-paced team, today's practice is decidedly up-tempo.
