One of the subplots of tonight's UW game at Oregon will be Jon Brockman needing seven rebounds to tie the UW career rebounding record.
Here's a quote about Brockman from coach Lorenzo Romar that didn't get into my story: "He could rebound in his sleep. If you had the power to do it and you just threw him in an NBA game, he'd rebound. He rebounds – period. … He's going to do that no matter where you put him."
But what's it like going against Brockman from the other side?
We asked Oregon junior center Joevan Catron, who has the task at 7 tonight: "It's going to be one heck of a battle: two big guys banging each other for 40 minutes. It's going to be a big battle. … You just know he's going to play hard the whole time you're on him. He's going to try to bang you, he's going to try to throw you out the way, he's going to elbow you, do whatever it takes to get that ball and put it in the basket."
