Women's Hoops Offer Their New Year's Resolutions

Dec. 31, 2009

EUGENE, Ore. – A new year is time for new beginnings, and the Washington women’s basketball team is able to experience both on this road trip.

First, the team will say goodbye to 2009, and hello to a new decade. Then the team will usher in the second portion of their schedule – Pac-10 Conference games. All of this occurs in Eugene, where the Huskies will meet the Ducks at Mac Court on Saturday night for the final time in the building’s history.

In the spirit of the New Year, the Huskies have written down a set of resolutions that they (hopefully) will stick to in 2010. Some are basketball-related, others hit on a more personal note. But we figured that we would share some of the best with you.

Coach Tia Jackson

Resolution: To cut from one Venti Caramel Latte from Starbucks to one. And get my braces taken off.

Assistant Coach Fred Applin

Resolution: I want to spend more time with family (i.e. vacation). And I want to read more Christian motivational books.

Assistant Coach Loree Payne

Resolution: I need to drink A LOT less Diet Coke
