Hitting the court

The Huskies just wrapped up their practice and media session here at Cox Arena.
No real big news, as might be expected, as these things rarely yield a whole lot.
Before they came here for what is mostly an exhibition practice, they had a real workout at the University of San Diego.
“The guys really got after it,” said UW assistant coach Cameron Dollar.
After the media session, the team had a 40-minute practice on the floor here, that was mostly shooting and a few basic drills.
The last five minutes turned into a dunk contest.
Most impressive were Harvey Perry, Joel Smith and Justin Dentmon.
Perry turned in a nice 360 effort; Dentmon’s best came when he bounced the ball off the ground then caught it and dunked after a 360; and Smith’s best might have come when he bounced the ball off the ground, then dunked it with a powerful windmill.
Unfortunately, there weren’t a whole lot of people to witness any of it.
There couldn’t have been more than 100 people in attendance, a far cry from last year in Boise when the atmosphere seemed a lot more electric.
UW’s only health concern is Ryan Appleby. But he said he’s getting a lot better with each day and the swelling in his face seemed significantly less today.
