Head coach Pam Borton and the Golden Gophers took some time before practice on Wednesday to personally thank Deborah Olson for her support of the Minnesota women's basketball program.
The coaches and players signed a large thank you card, which they presented to Deborah as the team huddled at mid court prior to practice. Deborah, who has provided support for multiple projects in athletics, took some time to speak to the team, and the group posed for a picture before starting practice.
"Deborah's friendship has meant a lot to Minnesota athletics and myself for many years," Borton said. "She is always willing to step to the plate to help make our program successful. She's very unselfish, because she doesn't do this for the recognition, but it means a lot to us that she is willing to go above and beyond to help keep our program competitive."
