In Pittsburgh

I made it here after about nine hours in the air and in Pittsburgh traffic from the airport and all I can say is that UW fans had better hope the Huskies are in better shape to play the game tomorrow than I am to write about it.
At least the hour or so it took to get from the airport to my hotel gave me a lot of time to read the Pittsburgh papers.
There were two interesting stories.
One was this column by Bob Smizik of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in which he writes 20 or so inches about how fans shouldn’t worry about Pitt bouncing back from the loss to Louisville Monday night yet never even mentions the fact that the Panthers are playing Washington Saturday. Kind of a sign how much luster this game has lost due to UW’s struggles this season from the shine it figured to have when it was scheduled last July.
Smizik points out that Pitt has struggled against teams with quick guards, which unfortunately doesn’t really define what the Huskies are right now.
There was also this from the Tribune-Review giving a Pitt’s eye view of the Huskies and much praise for Spencer Hawes and Jon Brockman.
I was on a radio show here today and they were pretty eager to hear about Hawes and to see him match up with Aaron Gray Saturday.
As for the Huskies, they practiced here for about two hours and then had study table and other activities in the afternoon. They were slated to have dinner at a Hard Rock Cafe tonight where they would be able to watch Brandon Roy play in the Rookie Challenge tonight.
