I'm taking a break from typing all those Nick Holt exclamation points to pass along a few quick items from today's meeting with basketball coach Lorenzo Romar and a few of the Huskies.
1.) Freshman guard Elston Turner (ankle) won't play Thursday against Stanford and isn't likely to play Saturday against California, but he is expected back for the Oregon trip next week.
2.) Romar and freshman Darnell Gant seem willing to put the incident with WSU senior Caleb Forrest (see blog post below) behind them without making it a bigger deal that it already has become. Gant said he thinks it will all be mostly forgotten by the time the Cougars come to Hec Ed in March.
3. ) Forward Jon Brockman says his own ankle sprain is getting better, but still isn't 100 percent.
4.) UW still hasn't been able to fill its date lost when Lehigh couldn't make it to Seattle due to late-December snows. However, it now appears that if a make-up game is arranged, Lehigh probably won't be the opponent.
5.) UW football coach Steve Sarkisian met with the basketball team this week. Brockman says he was impressed.
