Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Future lead Dawgs

Think back to the glory days of Husky football. What made those teams so great? The starters blew out the competition by halftime. By the middle of the third quarter the second and third teams were in the game. That provided valuable experience and playing time for “next year’s team.”
This year, the majority of minutes are going to a key group of upper
classmen: Simmons, Robinson, Rollins, Conroy, Jensen, Jones, Williams
and Roy (when healthy). Of course, the majority of scoring comes
from this core group also.
Looking forward to next November, the team expects to lose seniors
Simmons, Conroy and Rollins. The Dawgs also anticipate losing
Robinson and possibly Roy to the NBA draft. That leaves only Jones,
Jensen and Williams leading next year’s team.
Of course, everyone is eagerly waiting for next year’s top recruiting
class to arrive (7 players, rated as one of the top five classes in
the country by some sources). These young Huskies bring amazing
talent to the team, but no experience.
This year, Romar has done a great job of mixing up his rotation so
the young pups on the team get meaningful playing time. Who are
those young pups? Three players look to have a future with the
Huskies: freshman Joel Smith, and sophomores Hans Gasser and Brandon
Burmeister. Romar has been getting these players important minutes
this year when it counts.
So throughout this season, look for these three players to get
valuable playing time and experience. Two years from today, they will
be the lead Dawgs!
