Husky Men's Basketball

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

4 p.m. madness

I stumbled out of football interview duties to find about 500 members of the Dawg Pack watching today’s basketball practice.
The Dawg Pack was invited to watch practice and a scrimmage and then participate in a question-and-answer session with Lorenzo Romar and athletic director Todd Turner.
It was the second year the Huskies have invited the Dawg Pack to attend a practice.
The event featured a few touches of Midnight Madness – something UW didn’t do this year – such as a dunk exhibition at the end with Joel Smith and Artem Wallace. Wallace’s last dunk, a 360 punctuated by a hard slam, seemed to get the most applause.
Romar said he wanted to hold the special event for the Dawg Pack, comprised of UW’s most ardent student fans, “because they are a big part of what we do.”
Freshman Harvey Perry didn’t play in the scrimmage after tweaking his back, an injury not considered serious.
In the Q-and-A session, Romar was asked about the 2006 recruiting class. He can’t speak about the players publicly until they sign, but he said that “I think we are pretty much done for this year” in terms of adding any new players.
All of the new players continue to show flashes of ability, but the two who seem to be making the most impact right now are Jon Brockman and Justin Dentmon.
Brockman is almost certain to start this season but it’s not unrealistic to think that Dentmon could as well.
