After half a year without her players, UCLA women’s basketball coach Cori Close welcomed some back to practice for group workouts.
Nothing has been certain during the past six months. That’s why Cori Close is even more grateful for days like Wednesday.
After half a year without her players, the UCLA women’s basketball coach welcomed some back to campus for their first group workouts of the new season. The eight players who returned and passed a weeklong quarantine were split into two socially distant training cohorts. No one was allowed in the locker room. Coaches wore masks. Everyone was separated by 10 feet — still an improvement after being states and countries apart for so long.
“There have just been so many things going on that we have been venturing to attempt to do together, but it’s just really hard to connect,” Close said. “It was really good to see them face to face, to be with them and I’m really proud of this group of young women. I’m proud of their fortitude, I’m proud of their perseverance, I’m proud of their hope.”
Great to be back! 🐻💙💛
