The day after

Sorry for the late post, but had some Sunday family considerations.
First, here’s our coverage from today, starting with a game story centering on Jon Brockman’s play and Lorenzo Romar’s apparently quite spirited halftime talk to the team.
The Huskies led just 43-40 at halftime and let an Oregon State team that was shooting only 42.3 percent coming in make 55.2 percent in the first half, including 6-7 by center Kyle Jeffers.
Next is our notebook, focusing on Spencer Hawes and also with some info on C.J. Giles. Giles acknowledges he wanted to come back to UW once he was let go at Kansas but that the Huskies weren’t interested.
As for Hawes, he again came off the bench, and then played just eight minutes in the first half as coaches weren’t happy with his performance. He stirred to life in the second half to score 11 of his 13 points. Romar said he didn’t know when Hawes will return to the starting lineup, but said it will happen once Hawes is 100 percent and able to practice and play on a consistent basis.
Romar said until Hawes is completely healthy, he wants to avoid a situation where the team plans to start Hawes, then finds out that he can’t go. He compares the situation to that the team faced two years ago when Brandon Roy hurt his knee. He said it was easier to have a set starting lineup without Roy and then play Roy whoever much he could go off the bench instead of having a constantly rotating starting lineup.
There is also a quote in the notebook from Romar staunchly defending Hawes from those who have criticized him during his recent illness-related struggles.
There is also this story from the Corvallis Gazette-Times offering the Oregon State point of view.
