SYRACUSE, N.Y. - After arriving at its team hotel last night, the Washington Husky basketball team is ready for a day full of preparation for tomorrow's NCAA regional semifinal matchup against West Virginia. will have complete coverage of the Dawgs' visit to Syracuse and third Sweet 16 appearance in the last six seasons. So, keep checking back for the latest updates!

All times listed Eastern
12:02 p.m. - The Dawgs have taken the court for its 50-minute open practice session. The CBS announce team of Dick Enberg and Jay Bilas is in the house, as is the Westwood One radio crew of Ian Eagle and P.J. Carlisimo. A few oter media outlets are hanging around and there are about 200 fans watching practice.

11:48 p.m. - The Carrier Dome is open to the public and ready for Washington's noon practice. The Huskies arrived at the Dome about 45 minutes ago and is currently watching a NCAA-mandated video tape that outlines the organization's anti-gambling initiatives. The team woke around 9 a.m. then enjoyed a team breakfast in the hotel before leaving for the Dome.

The weather in Syracuse isn't bad. The sun is shining and the temperature is in the low 50's. There is a little wind outside, but as we learned a couple of years ago when the football team played here, there is little to no wind inside the Carrier Dome.

Certainly the environment inside the Dome is different that what the Huskies are used to. The building is cavernous - essentially fitting a basketball court into one end zone of the football field..
