Husky Men's Basketball

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

Tough night

Here are a few odds and ends from the 99-82 win over American.
• Coach Lorenzo Romar wasn’t a happy camper after this win, feeling that the defensive effort wasn’t there most of the night, particularly in the first half when American forged a 41-41 tie and shot 46.7 percent.
“We are a better defensive team than we showed,” Romar said.
Brandon Roy accepted much of the blame, saying that he and Bobby Jones, the team’s co-captains, didn’t do a good enough job getting the younger players ready to play.
“This one’s our fault,” Roy said.
Still, the Huskies were able to put the hammer down when needed in the second half to turn it into a comfortable win. Roy led the way, scoring 15 of his 17 points in the second half.
Roy said he gave the team a little talk at halftime reminding them of how California and Stanford have lost in upsets the last two games and that the Huskies didn’t want to follow suit.
• Roy left the game briefly holding his hand, but it was nothing to worry about. He said he hit his funny bone and his whole elbow locked up for a little while.
• Artem Wallace started the second half in place of Jamaal Williams. Asked why, Romar said that Wallace was “rebounding the ball and busting his tail on the defensive end so we inserted him in there.”
Wallace had seven rebounds and a blocked shot along with one point in 16 minutes.
• Romar continues to be impressed by point guard Justin Dentmon, who had eight points, two assists and two steals in 27 minutes.
“He did a good job running our ball club,” Romar said.
Dentmon, however, has been hit hard by screens a couple of times in recent games, including one again tonight, and Romar said that’s something the team has to do better.
• Harvey Perry sat out again with his back injury, and there is still no definitive word on what is wrong.
• One of the best signs for the Huskies was the play of Ryan Appleby, who was held to one point against Air Force but had 14 and hit 3 of 8 three-pointers against American.
“We need his perimeter shooting and in two of four games he has been outstanding at it,” Romar said.
