A few quick notes

Travel concerns mean I don’t have much time to do much with the blog for a while.
But here are a few quick notes:
— Spencer Hawes said he should be able to play Thursday against Oregon. He said he hurt the ankle near the end of Friday’s practice when he tried to block a shot in a scrimmage and landed on a teammate’s foot (he doesn’t know whose foot). He said the injury stiffened over night and he couldn’t run well enough to make it worth playing. UW coach Lorenzo Romar said it wasn’t worth “trying to pull a Willis Reed” and send Hawes out for a few plays at the risk of making it worse.
Said Hawes: “I was trying to go out there and get it warm so I could play and it just wouldn’t help me out at all. I wouldn’t have been helping the team if I tried.”
— To a man, UW players said afterward they don’t consider the season a lost cause. Said Romar: “It’s important that we are firm and understand what we have to go to get better. At the same time, we have to remain somewhat positive and try to reverse this direction and get headed in the right direction.”
— The margin of victory was the largest ever for WSU against UW in the 261 games the two teams have played in a series dating to 1910. It was also the worst loss for UW since Romar’s first season, an 89-57 loss at Arizona State.
— UW’s 28.3 percent shooting was the worst of the season for the Huskies. UW was actually 6-18 on three-pointers, meaning the Huskies were 9-35 from inside the arc.
— No Husky shot better than 50 percent. Brockman was the closest at 6-13.
— UW has now lost all six road games this season and will have just five chances left to win on the road against the Oregon and Arizona schools and at Pitt.
