Road Trip: Follow The Huskies In Arizona
Feb. 4, 2010
11:30 AM: We've decamped in Arizona. It's weird seeing such a brilliant sun after a typical winter in Seattle, but the team has already remarked several times at breakfast about taking advantage of the weather. One caveat: a team rule limits to the student-athletes to just 15 minutes of sun-bathing on game days. Too much exposure, obviously, can be dangerous and the coaches want to particularly careful before games.
The team is staying at the luxurious Mission Palm Hotel, where palm trees and an impressive fountain surround the hotel. Our temporary base is right on Mill Ave., the main student drag here at ASU, so the team has plenty of opportunities to shop this afternoon. They'll have to wait until after shootaround, which is currently underway at Wells Fargo Arena.
A reminder, tonight's game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Arizona. The station's talent and producer are on-hand watching shootaround.
