Women's basketball goes on the road – to Brazil
There's more to Brazil than beaches, mountains, jungles and rivers. There's also basketball for the University of St. Thomas women's team, which is on a 10-day exhibition trip, from Aug. 11-20, to South America's largest country.
The team will compete against four top-flight club teams and also participate in a service project benefiting underprivileged children.
The Tommies won their first exhibition game Wednesday, Aug. 13, defeating the Tijuca Tenis Club, 54-48.
Coach Ruth Sinn is keeping a blog of her team's trip. For the latest scores and to read about the team's experiences, read her blog here.
