Among the many disappointments coach Lorenzo Romar felt about his team being left out of the NIT field, one particular one was disappointment at the abrupt end for his two seniors.
"When we played that last game at Washington State, we didn't hug and shed tears as if this is our last game together. Hans Gasser and Brandon Burmeister are seniors. That was their last game, and we had no way of knowing that."
Of course, it may also have been the last college game for freshman Spencer Hawes, if he chooses to go to the NBA. When asked Sunday he maintained his season-long position that he hasn't decided yet, and said he didn't know if this abrupt end of the season would figure into his decision.
"I don't know," he said. "It could figure in, or it couldn't. That's the last thing on my mind right now."
