Happy Monday, folks.

We heard (and wrote) quite a bit about team chemistry this spring. It was evident early that that is extremely important to Chris Petersen and this new coaching staff, and thus it must become important to the UW players, too.

Change can be difficult, and I thought Hau’oli Kikaha summed up the spring transition well:

“What I can say is, I know everyone is trying,” the senior defensive end said. “The guys who are having a harder time adjusting, they’re slowly picking it up and trying to fix problems every day. And it’s working.

“I’m amazed by the things that they’ve done in the past with their previous teams,” he added. “They had fewer resources and they didn’t (recruit) as many whatever-star guys, but still that (chemistry) aspect of the game is so important that they’re able to dominate and win games and win championships with those guys. It’s something huge that we’ve never been able to witness (first hand).

“I don’t think we understand fully, but I’m excited to see when that happens for us.”

Here’s our full story wrapping up UW’s spring from today’s paper.

The Huskies are scheduled to start fall camp in early August (I don’t have an exact date yet). I’ll continue to post as often as possible, but I’ll be assigned other duties as well (I’m covering my first Mariners game for The Times tonight, and I’ll start covering more UW baseball as well).
