PRAGUE – The Washington State University women’s basketball team continued its 10-day foreign trip through Europe, traveling to Karlovy Vary to tour the Moser Glass Factory and face the Karlovy Vary basketball club.
The team defeated Karlovy Vary, 85-60, and were led by sophomore Mariah Cooks with 17 points.
The Cougars will face their fourth, and final, European opponent, VSE Praha, at 1:30 p.m. UTC (4:30 a.m. PST) Thursday, Aug. 15. The team will return to Pullman Friday, Aug. 16.
Throughout the Cougars' travels in Europe, seniors Brandi Thomas, Sage Romberg, and Hana Potter will be keeping a players’ blog of their thoughts and activities. Below is an entry from Brandi Thomas, recapping the day’s events.
“Today we got to take a little bus trip to Moser Glass Factory! We got the chance to look around at their gallery, which was all quite expensive. The most awesome part about it was that we actually got to go in the factory part itself and watch the workers make the glass. It was definitely an experience that I'll always remember! There were separate stations where they would make wine glasses, whiskey glasses, and vases. Kate was lucky enough to take part in the action of glass blowing!
Our next stop was the gym where we took home another win today! The gyms here are quite different than the Pac-12 gyms that we're use to at home! They are more like high school gyms which means it gets loud quickly. Perfect for our fans :) Our last game is tomorrow and I know we all plan on taking four wins with us back home to Pullman!”
