Husky Men's Basketball

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

Wednesday wanderings

A reader asked about UW’s attendance in relation to a note we had in the paper today about UCLA’s.
Washington averaged 8,844 per game this year for an 88.4 percent of its capacity of 10,000. That includes the three games in the BCA Classic that weren’t well-attended and weren’t part of the regular-season ticket package. UW sold out every Pac-10 game.
The only Pac-10 teams with higher percent of capacities are Arizona (100 percent at 14,584 McKale Center); and Oregon (93.5 percent at 9,087 Mac Court). Stanford’s next at 76.9 (7,233 Maples Pavilion) followed by UCLA 69.5 percent (12,800 Pauley Pavilion).
— A reader forwarded an interesting link on CNNSI.com. It’s part of their “SI Extra” exclusive content so I can’t link to it. But it included a poll of Pac-10 players, with the Huskies coming out favorably on several issues.
For instance, Romar was voted “the opposing coach you’d most like to play for” by 60 percent of those who responded, with one player saying “he’s a player’s coach. All the guys on his team seem to enjoy playing for him.”
Washington was also named the “team with the most respect for its coach” by 30 percent of those who voted, and Ryan Appleby was voted “best shooter” by 30 percent.
Last, Brandon Roy was voted “best future pro.”
Maybe the most interesting other winners were WSU’s Josh Akognon as “most underrated player” and Oregon as the “team with the least respect for its coach.”
If you subscribe to SI, you can access the poll on the college basketball page.
— As of 4:30 p.m., no official word on Harvey Perry. He’s expected to make the trip, to help with practice if nothing else, so he’ll be there. But again, I’ll be real surprised if he plays now.
