Candice Dupree’s Team USA Training Camp Blog - Day 8
From the looks and sounds of it, everyone was having a hard time getting going. Come 2:30, we departed for the gym for our three o'clock practice. Coach Auriemma is a smart, smart man...he used today's practice for stretching and to get our legs moving. I had no complaints considering we had just had a 24 hour travel day. We also reviewed a few more defensive schemes and then called it a day.
We went back to the hotel, showered, and headed to dinner. After dinner a few of us had some stimulating conversation about any and everything you can imagine. There are two reasons I enjoyed it: One, because it kept me from going back to my room and going to sleep too early; and two, because I enjoy good conversation and listening to peoplesí thoughts and opinions.
Well that's all I have for now. Thanks for keeping up to date with everything thatís going on and make sure to keep checking back as we get into tournament play.
