Smith sidelined, madness coming

Joel Smith’s chances of earning a starting spot at guard for the Huskies this season may have taken a bit of a hit.
UW coaches said today that Smith will be out 4-6 weeks with a stress fracture in his foot. If he makes it back on the short side of that, he will be back in time for the beginning of practice on Oct. 13.
Otherwise, he could miss the first week or two of practice. Smith will be battling the likes of Adrian Oliver, Ryan Appleby and Harvey Perry for a starting spot in the backcourt alongside returning point guard Justin Dentmon.
Speaking of the beginning of practice, UW is close to officially announcing that a Midnight Madness type event will be held on Oct. 13, as we’ve reported here before.
The event will follow a volleyball game featuring UW and WSU that night. It will include both the men’s and women’s teams and likely include a dunk contest, shooting contest and, possibly, a scrimmage.
UW officials hope to get FSN to televise it live, as well. There will also be live web coverage on gohuskies.com.
