Husky Men's Basketball

Hoopla redux

I rather intentionally didn’t opine much on my earlier post, wanting to hear what you had to think first.
Thanks for all the good responses, and I have to say I agree with the overwhelming sentiments expressed:
— It dragged on and took too long to get to the actual basketball;
— And it wasn’t Softy’s best night.
Here’s what I’d do.
—- Condense all the non-basketball stuff. Maybe one skit or something if they must, but the dance thing took way to long.
— Give the coaches the mics for the night and do away with the hosts. What I wanted to hear was what Lorenzo Romar had to say, not Softy or Angie Mentink. Give Romar the mic, have him introduce the players with a 30-second or so intro on each that tells us something about them, expectations for this year, etc.Then let him keep the mic throughout the dunk contests and the scrimmage.
—- If you’re going to have a shooting contest, have a real shooting contest. I wanted to see if any other UW players could really sink more 3-pointers in 30 seconds or something than Ryan Appleby. That would have been fun to watch.
— Let the players talk. Maybe have Romar conduct little interviews with each of his players to give us a feel of who they are, etc.
— Have some other skill contests. The dunk thing is fine with me, but I would also have loved to see something like free throw shooting contests or dribbling contests among the players. Again, the event should be about them, not the hosts or the celebrity judges.
