Lineup to stay the same

The Huskies practiced late today, thanks in part to a number of players taking tests.
UW coach Lorenzo Romar said the lineup will be the same tomorrow as it was against Oregon, with Spencer Hawes again coming off the bench.
“He just hasn’t had a lot of time in practice (recently),” Romar said. “So let’s bring him off (the bench) and let him fit in as the game goes. … Until there is some consistency there and getting some practices in, as opposed to disrupting and keep changing things we’ll just go this way for now.”
As Romar pointed out, Hawes still played 29 minutes against Oregon (his season average is 27.7 minutes per game).
That means Artem Wallace will again start at center. Romar said he likes the pairing of Wallace and Jon Brockman, calling them “our two most physical players” and said Wallace has learned more “how to compete” at the Pac-10 level this year. Romar said the next step for Wallace is to learn to finish better around the basket when he has chances to score.
By making 6-14 three-pointers against Oregon, the Huskies took over the Pac-10 lead in three-point field goal percentage at 38.7. That could be key tomorrow as Oregon State ranks last in the conference in three-point field goal percentage defense, allowing teams to shoot 36.7 percent.
There was no other personnel news of note.
