Went to historic Mac Court last night on the campus of the University of Oregon to watch former UCC Riverhawk Kristi Fallin make her Oregon debut in an exhibition game against Southern Oregon University. It didn't take long for 10 year old Taylor to mention that it looked strange seeing Kristi in a different uniform and I must admit she was right! If Kristi was nervous she didn't show it and I thought she played well even though she didn't have a record setting shooting night.
It was great to see Micaela (Williams) Leinonen there too. Micaela set the Umpqua single game record of 10 three pointers made in a game before accepting a scholarship to NNU and was there to support Kristi as well.
UCC alum Amy Waltenburg also made her Washington State debut last week in WSU's exhibition game against Lewis-Clark State. I'll try to get some pictures of Amy up here as soon as possible!
It's pretty cool having two former players in the Pac 10 and I'm already looking forward to the Oregon-WSU game!!
