Husky Men's Basketball

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

Starters set

The opener for the Washington men’s basketball team is still two days away, but Husky coach Lorenzo Romar on Friday revealed the team’s starting lineup.
And it’s the same one that began the team’s exhibition game against Simon Fraser last week – Jon Brockman and Jamaal Williams up front with Bobby Jones, Brandon Roy and Justin Dentmon in the backcourt.
The most static position has been point guard, where Dentmon has been competing with Ryan Appleby.
But don’t read too much into the fact that Dentmon is starting ahead of Appleby. Mostly, it’s a matter of figuring out how best to use the team’s personnel.
But Romar liked the look the team got in the Simon Fraser game with Appleby coming off the bench – he scored 20 points in that game.
Put Appleby in the starting lineup and points off the bench – particularly from the perimeter – might be harder to come by.
Romar has said that the lineup could change often early in the season.
But from here, I don’t see any of the positions other than Dentmon-Appleby ever really varying too much until Mike Jensen comes back in mid-to-late December.
