Any of you watching UW's basketball game against Pitt on TV might have noticed the clip from Romar's playing days, showing him harmonizing on "People Get Ready" on a bus ride with his 1983-84 Milwaukee Bucks teammates.
Even though Romar sounded pretty good to me, he said he got some cracks about his singing.
However, it's clear that he remembers that team fondly.
"That team was one of the first teams where I really understood what 'team' meant," he said. "The bus rides, going to church on Sundays - not the whole team, but when we were on the road a group of us might get together and go. Go to the movies together. Go to each other's house for dinner. That team was pretty close-knit."
Never miss a local story.
As far as news, there wasn't much today.
Romar said he will go with another defensive-oriented lineup Saturday against Portland, but he doesn't want to commit to any names until after the Friday practice. That was the main message to the media today and presumably to his players all week: Romar believes this team will go as far as their defense takes them, and he's going to use playing time to reward those who understand.
