I've made it to the Bay Area, and the Huskies should be right behind me.
They practiced at Hec Edmundson Pavilion this afternoon and were scheduled to fly out around 7 p.m. They will practice early Wednesday at an undisclosed location and then go to HP Pavilion where they will hold a workout from 5:55 to 6:35 p.m. that will be open to the public. Marquette’s open practice will run from 4:25 to 5:05 p.m.
A few other notes from today:Jon Brockman, the former Husky and current Sacramento King, plans to attend the first-round game. … Marquette coach Buzz Williams said that his team is the underdog because it is traveling into Pac-10 country. However, Romar wasn’t buying that. “I don’t know if they’re an underdog anywhere,” he said. “They’ve got the higher seed. We’re just two teams that are going to go in scrappy.” … The Golden Eagles arrived in San Jose a day ahead of the Huskies to adjust to the change of two time zones from their Milwaukee campus.
