With less than 48 hours left before the big Pac-12 China game, the UW Men’s Basketball team took in the sights of Shanghai, observing monks, visiting historic sites and practicing their Mandarin with locals. The Huskies also gave presentations at a temple as part of their class with English Professor Shawn Wong.

And today the team joined in a fun-filled, Special Olympics basketball clinic and scrimmage with student athletes from Shanghai Pudong Special Education School and staff from the U.S. Consulate General.
