Husky Men's Basketball

Three-point barrage

The outcome was never in doubt, but UW made it interesting by making a school-record 17-34 three-pointers.
The 102=74 win came on Lorenzo Romar’s 48th birthday.
Here are some of his comments from his post-game radio show on KJR-AM.
“The positive side to this is that we did a great job of really controlling the game. I understand Nicholls State is not a top 10 team. At the same time, you do what we did in the first half if you are an aspiring champion and we were able to do it.”
On making 17 three-pointers. “That’s probably too many threes for us night in and night out. At the same time they sat in the zone and we got wide-open looks. We don’t discourage our shooters from taking wide open 3-pointers.”
On the uneven night by Spencer Hawes, who scored the first four points of the game and then never scored again: “Last night was an emotional night for Spencer. It was an opening game and he had fun. Tonight he stared out pretty good, was pretty active. As we distanced ourselves from Nicholls State I think we let down a little bit.”
On Brandon Burmeister, who had a career-high 17: “Brandon had a very nice game. He’s solid. You always know what he’s going to give you night in and night out.”
On what figures to be a tough game Tuesday night against a good Northern Iowa team: “That team is going to be a good team. We knew coming in we would have our hands full with Northern Iowa.”
Romar said he thinks the schedule is setting up perfectly for UW in that it opened against Pepperdine and its unique run-and-gun style, then had a game tonight in which it realized it will always have to stay focused, and then against UNI will get tested well.
“Now we are going to play an opponent in Northern Iowa that is well-coached and very disciplined and can shoot the basketball and is not going to beat themselves. It is a big challenge for this young Husky team.”
UNI has made the NCAA Tournament the last three years.
