Husky Men's Basketball

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

On the ground in San Diego

Everyone arrived safely here last night, which I can attest to first-hand as a bunch of us in the media happened to be on the same flight as the team.
Unlike their pro counterparts, college teams fly commercial. Lorenzo Romar was in a coach seat — yes, that seems somewhat fitting I guess — just a few rows in front of me.
Some of the assistants brought computers with them and watched video of Utah State during the flight. Players seemed to be doing the things you’d expect — some watching movies, some listening to music, others talking or reading.
The Huskies were to practice today in private then head to Cox Arena for their official public shootaround at 5 p.m.
We’ll keep you posted here on news from that and the press conferences that precede it.
NOTES
• Tre Simmons was at practice in Seattle yesterday, back in town for a week or so from having played the last few months in Greece. He said he’s enjoying his experience there and will head back there when this vacation is done to play some more in Greece.
• Here’s an ESPN report on Gonzaga assistant Leon Rice saying he’s no longer interested in the Idaho job.
Interesting move — none of those Gonzaga guys seem to want to go anywhere as that staff has been together longer than the Rolling Stones. That could have implications at UW, however, as Husky assistant Cameron Dollar remains interested in the Idaho job and has talked with UI officials. But it’s unlikely anything will happen on that front until after the NCAA tournament.
