We start our women's basketball news today with an update.
We got to know the Maryland women's basketball program a few years ago when the Terrapins were the No. 1 seed in the 2008 regional at the Arena. First we found the local connection, a Valley lady whose son was an assistant coach. Then we did a story about the challenges of motherhood, focusing on coach Brenda Frese, who had just delivered twins. Then, of course, Stanford and Maryland played an epic game with the Cardinal earning the berth to the Final Four.
Well, I've stumbled into a story by Milton Nelson to update you on the twins Frese delivered a month before arriving in Spokane. The boys are now 2 and sadly the story I found on fanhouse.com, dated Dec. 24, is about Tyler and his battle with lukemia. Sure puts the game in perspective.
Our notebook today was about EWU senior Tatjana Sparavalo (EWU photo above). We'll have links for the weekend games on Thursday.
