Brockman praised

Got a flight to catch here soon, so I don’t have as much time as I’d like to post about what was said here today at Pac-10 media day. But a lot of that information will come out in different posts throughout the next few days and weeks.
One quick observation is that Lorenzo Romar was quite open about what he expects out of a few of his players this year, notably Jon Brockman, Justin Dentmon and Ryan Appleby.
Romar said “a lot more responsibility will be placed on their shoulders and we expect those guys to have big years for us. We expect Jon to be one of the top rebounders in the league and that he could potentially be a double-double guy and that’s what we thought when we recruited him.”
UCLA coach Ben Howland seemed to agree with the Brockman assessment — remember, he tried hard to recruit Brockman to Westwood. Howland said that Brockman and Spencer Hawes “are the best four-five punch in the league.”
