Sue Guevara, coach of 11th-seeded Central Michigan, expected to hear about how her team would handle its underdog status – that is, being the Cinderella team of the Spokane Regional.
Guevara was ready.
“Cinderella was not invited to the ball was she? No. … We got invited to the ball,” Guevara said. “We didn’t need a fairy godmother to give is slippers or high heels or whatever to go to the ball. Adidas gave us tennis shoes and we’re out.”
Then came the, uh, hook.
Recalling Julia Roberts in the movie “Pretty Woman,” Guevara said, “Sure, she wanted it all and she got it all. She earned it all. … If we’re going to be a Cinderella, I’m going to be like Julia Roberts in ‘Pretty Woman.’ ”
