Husky Men's Basketball

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

Odds and ends

No word yet on Perry: While there are been lots of rumors about the injury status of freshman guard Harvey Perry, UW coach Lorenzo Romar said before practice today that test results on Perry’s ailing back are still pending. Until those tests come in, no decisions will be made as to whether Perry will redshirt or play. Romar said Perry will be sidelined “until we find out what’s wrong.” Perry said he has had back trouble for about two years and it recently began flaring up again. He played in UW’s exhibition game but sat out the three games in the BCA Classic.
Tre back in town: Romar interrupted his session with the media to greet former Husky Tre Simmons, who is back in town after spending a few weeks with a team in Paris in the French pro leagues. Romar said Simmons has returned to Seattle to have his knee checked out and that if no problems are found, he will likely return to Paris to play.
Lineup the same: Romar said the lineup for Saturday’s game against American will remain the same as it has all season, with Brandon Roy, Bobby Jones and Justin Dentmon in the backcourt and Jon Brockman and Jamaal Williams up front.
Brockman hitting the boards: Brockman is averaging 9.3 rebounds. It’s obviously really early, but if he keeps that up all season, it would be the best since Todd MacCulloch averaged 11.9 in as a senior in 1999. No Husky has averaged more than 7.6 (David Dixon in 2002) since then.
Slick Watts redux: One of the gifts players received for taking part in the BCA Classic were white headbands. When Romar opened the door to the meeting room before practice, every player had his on. Romar’s response, according to a team spokesman? “Just like bald heads, those look good on some guys, and not so good on others.”
A look around the league: One thing I’ll try to do more of here is alert readers to interesting stories about other Pac-10 schools. Here are two good season previews of USC and Oregon State.
