After practice at Oregon today, coach Lorenzo Romar stressed that his team is still aiming for the NCAA tournament ... even if it takes winning the Pac-10 tournament to get there.
However, he confirmed that if the Huskies don't get there, they would accept an invitation to the National Invitation Tournament.
He also said that even if he became convinced that winning the Pac-10 tournament was the only way to get to the NCAA tournament, he said he won't handle the remaining regular season games any differently -- resting starters more, etc.
"Every day you've got to get better," he said. "I don't think that changes. If you thought we were a lock for the NCAA tournament, every day youv'e got to get better. I don't think any of that changes."
