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

Changes ahead?

We’re back to the blog on a regular basis now that the Super Bowl is over.
And just in time to detail what figures to be the most critical week of the season for the Huskies.
They have lost three in a row and probably have to get a sweep this weekend against USC and UCLA to stay on track for an NCAA men’s basketball tournament bid.
I think they probably have to have a winning conference record to get in and since they have four of their last six on the road, a couple wins this weekend are almost a necessity.
Lorenzo Romar also knows this is a crucial juncture of the season and said today at his regular press briefing that he is considering shaking up the lineup a bit.
He didn’t go into specifics other than saying Brandon Roy and Jon Brockman would not come out of the lineup, and said he likely wouldn’t decide until shortly before gametime Thursday.
But the mere fact that he is considering changes points to how poorly the team played in Pullman and the need to turn things around quickly.
I’ll have more detail on this on-line and in The Times on Wednesday.
Also, Romar said there is still a chance that Harvey Perry will play this season. He has another meeting with doctors tomorrow that could clear him to begin practicing next week.
Romar also said Zach Johnson is doing well in his rehabilitation from knee surgery and there’s a chance he could return to play next season.
