Husky Men's Basketball

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

Monday meanderings

There were two neat scenes from after practice today.
The first was newly-mined Brandon Roy playing a little hoops with his 2-year-old nephew Marquis, who is the son of Brandon’s older brother Ed, who played at Garfield a few years before Brandon.
Marquis was wearing a Michael Jordan jersey and already appeared to have some of the family skill at the game, dribbling away with a mini basketball.
“He’s going to be the Pac-10 Player of the Year someday, too,” Brandon said with a smile.
Brandon Roy had told me earlier that Marquis sometimes spends the night at his house, and that Brandon has a little hoop there that Marquis will use.
The two often watch games together. “Every game he sees on TV he points and says ‘Uncle Brandon, Uncle Brandon,”’ Brandon Roy said. “And I’m like ‘naw, I’m right here beside you.”’
Fun scene number two was Spencer Hawes, who appeared to watch most of practice now that he has a little free time with Seattle Prep’s season over, playing a little one-on-one with Joe Wolfinger.
I don’t know who won, but there weren’t a whole lot of missed shots during the time I was watching as they appear to be two highly-skilled young players.
This year, obviously, could have a long ways to go.
But watching those two go at it was also a sign that even though this program will really miss Roy and the three other departing seniors, the future is going to be mighty interesting.
