Romar: Calipari did nothing wrong

The UW men's basketball team will practice this afternoon at Hec Ed and then leave tomorrow morning for the Maui Invitational.

Because Kentucky also is in the Maui field and looms as a potential second-game opponent, it was inevitable that the recruitment of Portland's Terrence Jones would come up.

Today it did, with coach Lorenzo Romar cutting straight to the point: "Kentucky coach John) Calipari didn't do anything wrong in that situation," he said.

Romar also said that Jones -- who publicly committed to UW before doing a quick about-face and going to Kentucky -- probably wishes he could handle his end of the deal differently. But again, Romar seemed to have no interest in blame, and wishes Jones well.

Meanwhile, while Romar also made clear that while he isn't interested in comparing Terrences, he did stress again how happy he is to have ended up with Terrence Ross on his roster.
