30 Sep “China, Revisited” via University of Washington
A piece about a former student of mine, Jane Yang, and our time teaching basketball players in China.
“It’s a Tuesday afternoon in late September, and sophomore Jane Yang is teaching a classroom full of UW basketball players how to say “Beat Texas” in Mandarin. She makes sure that the class gets this phrase right. It will be useful, after all: The UW men open their basketball season on Nov. 14 against the University of Texas — in Shanghai, China.”
