Huskies done for the day

UW’s session on the practice court ended here a little while ago, shortly before 3.
Having practiced already today at Portland State — where former UW assistant Ken Bone paid a quick visit before heading out with the Vikings for their tournament game Friday — they are now done for the day, headed back to the hotel and a team dinner late tonight.
There was maybe 250 people or so watching the workout — not a real substantive turnout by any measure — but these things aren’t the most exciting in the world as the teams mostly shoot and go through basic drills.
As do a lot of the teams, UW ended their session with a little impromptu dunking contest. The one that seemed to get the biggest cheer came when Justin Holiday leaped and was given a boost from Jon Brockman and Artem Wallace for an especially high-flying slam. Isaiah Thomas also drew some oohs and aahs with a few of his dunks — everyone loves the little guy — and there was an assortment of windmills and dunks off passes off the backboard.
The next time the Huskies enter this arena it will be for the game tomorrow against Mississippi State.
