Tipoff nearing

About 20 minutes to tip off here for a game that I think may be as interesting as any other UW has played so far.
Could be that Southern Utah is the second-best team the Huskies have played to date behind only Northern Iowa. The player to watch for SUU is its point guard, Steve Barnes, who leads the team in 3-point shooting (47 percent), scoring (14.5), assists and steals. As coaches often say, a good point guard can make up for a lot of other problems.
If Hans Gasser doesn’t play tonight it’s because he has a problem with a right front tooth. He apparently spent about three hours attempting to get it fixed today and the job still didn’t get completely done so he’ll have to go back for more work tomorrow. He’s in uniform and is scheduled to play, but if he doesn’t, that’s why.
Also, Harvey Perry is sitting on the bench, but don’t read anything into that. He simply is finishing out school here and has been allowed to be around the team until he departs. He was shagging rebounds for his former teammates before the game — kind of a surreal sight, to be sure.
As always, feel free to leave game comments here and we’ll have more later.
