Oh, it was hot this morning — hotter than heck.
The mercury was in the 80s. One of the trainers measured the humidity at 87 percent. It felt worse because the Warriors were practicing on Ching’s artificial surface.
It was like an old Richard Simmons‘ DVD — sweating to the 80s.
And yet …
“It’s beautiful,” UH coach Nick Rolovich declared. “It’s not hot. It’s beautiful. Do you want to be out in the snow? Neither do they. But you know what? Even if it were snowing, they’d practice the same way because they love each other.”
As for Saturday’s game against Duquesne, Rolovich said, it is significant because it’s homecoming. And, he added, “at the core of it, it’s the chance for these guys to play together again.”
