We got to speak to coach Lorenzo Romar and a few of the Huskies this afternoon. No one is pretending that the CBI is the NCAA tournament ... or even the NIT. However, everyone seems happy to have more games to play, rather than simply turning on the TV as they were forced to do last season.
(Here's the story from our Tuesday paper.)
As for that game, Romar said that Jon Brockman (ankle) remains day-to-day: possible for Wednesday, but likely for Monday if the Huskies advance past Valpo.
Romar also said that Quincy Pondexter's performance in the Pac-10 tournament loss to Cal was good enough to merit another start -- whether Brockman starts or not.
Never miss a local story.
Not much other real news, except that football coach Tyrone Willingham had a free-throw shooting contest with one of the basketball players -- let's call him, um, "Q" -- and Willingham won. They were taking turns shooting two free throws each. Willingham hit seven of his eight, when Q missed two of his first seven that was that. Willingham -- who was wearing green for St. Pat's day and made a point of sticking his head into the media room to make sure all the writers were wearing green (and fortunately we were)-- seemed pleased.
