Quincy Pondexter was held out of practice today with a sprained ankle suffered Saturday in UW's loss to California.
"He'll have to sit out practice again today and tomorrow we'll see what we can do at practice. I'm saying we're hopeful."
"Hopeful," by the way, seems a linguistic downgrade from Saturday when Romar said he "expected" Pondexter to be ready to play Saturday when the Huskies visit Washington State.
After watching Pondexter being helped out of the gym at Cal and then after seeming him walking gingerly today, I'd use the word "surprised" -- maybe even "amazed" -- if he's ready.
Pondexter is third on the team with a 12.9 point per game average and a 4.6 rebounds per game average.
