Not a lot of news from coach Lorenzo Romar today. The biggest news, I guess, is that freshman Justin Holiday will not be available against Stanford and Cal this week, as he is still limited by his ankle and knee sprains. It was hoped that Holiday might return this week, but now it looks like the season-ending WSU game instead.
Romar also said he expects the lineup to remain the same, that he doesn't think his team's 14-game losing streak at Maples Pavilion will having anything to do with the result Thursday, and that he assumes Stanford-transfer Tim Morris will have some emotions about returning to his former home court.
Looking back at the loss to Arizona State, he said he thought both execution and effort could have been better.
Finally he said he hasn't spent any time figuring the math needed for winning records or moving out of the first-day bracket in the Pac-10 tournament, etc. Full focus, he said, is on the here and now of preparing for Stanford.
