Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

December 20, 2006 at 11:00 PM

Worth the wait

This is what everyone had been waiting for.
This was the Husky team that has been eliciting all that excitement since the day this freshmen class began coming together.
The Huskies dominated in every way against a team that a year ago was in the Final Four, with the duo of Spencer Hawes and Jon Brockman at the forefront of everything.
Those two combined for 42 points and 26 rebounds and held Glen Davis to eight points and nine rebounds in 37 minutes. Hawes had career highs of 23 and 12 while Brockman had 19 and 14, the latter tying a career-best.
“We got it handed to us tonight by those two guys,” said LSU coach John Brady.
UW won the rebounding battle 44-34, lost just nine turnovers, and hit 8-13 3-pointers.
Not only did the game come before a national TV audience on FSN, but Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Isaiah Thomas were also in the stands. Thomas has said all along he still intends to become a Husky while MBA has signed for next season.
Also here tonight were Digger Phelps and George Raveling, the latter talking with Brady after the game for a while.
UW coach Lorenzo Romar, meanwhile, said his team lived up to what the coaches have been preaching from the first day of camp to work hard, play defense and rebound. “If you do those things at a high level, you get to have a lot of fun because it pays off for you,” he said. “I thought that tonight, we modelded that in every way.”
The only bad news might have been that Hawes was so good, all that one-and-done talk will be quickly revived.
Hawes is seventh on this mock draft for next season from HoopsHype.com published three days ago, and after a game like that, his stock can only rise.
Here are some other notes:
— Both Brockman and Hawes had double figures in both points and rebounds, the first time the Huskies have done that since a game against Air Force in Nov. 2005 when Brandon Roy and Brockman pulled it off.
— Former Husky Tre Simmons sat behind the UW bench wearing a LaDanian Tomlinson jersey.
— Artem Wallace was the first Husky off the bench tonight and played six solid minutes in the first half, though he played only seven total and didn’t score. Still, he played good defense while he was in the game.
