MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Head coach Pam Borton took her team through its third official day of practice Thursday afternoon at Williams Arena. Here are some notes, a photo gallery from Wednesday's practice, and some video interviews with freshmen guards Joanna Hedstrom and Stabresa McDaniel. Also interviewed were assistant coach Kelly Roysland and certified athletic trainer Kate Taber.

Gophers Thank Deborah Olson
Head coach Pam Borton and the Golden Gophers took some time before yesterday's practice to personally thank Deborah Olson for her support of Minnesota women's basketball. The coaches and players signed a 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 then posed for a picture before the start of 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."

Back From London
Minnesota's certified athletic trainer, Kate Taber, returned to practice on Wednesday. Taber's husband, Brett, is manager of entertainment and youth programs in sales and marketing with the Minnesota Vikings, so they were able to spend several days in London with the Purple and Gold.

It was the first time in England for Kate, who is in her second year with the women's basketball program. She not only got to see the Vikings win their first game of the season with a 34-27 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but she was also able to attend a professional soccer match.

See the attached video for an interview with Kate about her journey to London.
