Brockman leads way

The talk after UW’s 91-74 win over Oregon State was of Jon Brockman’s zeal and Lorenzo Romar’s halftime chat.
Brockman was everywhere in leading the Huskies to the win, diving on the floor and through the tunnel for loose balls and also tying his career-high with 25 points. As Oregon State coach Jay John said: “We had no answer for Jon Brockman. We don’t have a guy tough enough to deal with him.”
Romar said he felt Brockman was showing the rest of the team how to play with his own actions. “It was ‘I’m just going to show you and you follow my lead,”’ romar said. “I think that is what Jon was doing out there tonight.”
Only Brockman and Justin Dentmon really brought it early, however, and UW led just 43-40 at halftime, which apparently elicited a loud halftime talk from Romar.
“He had some words,” Brockman said. “Some big words. But we realized that we played horrible in the first half and we were ahead and we just had to get after it in the second half and I think we took care of business.”
Indeed, that might have been the most impressive aspect of this win. The recent struggles have made it easy to wonder if maybe all the talent has been overhyped. But the ability to dominate a half in such a fashion demonstrates that a lot of what everyone has thought this team has is there.
The key now is getting the team to perform like that on a consistent basis, and especially on the road.
