Lodrick Stewart comes home one more time

Could this really be the last big-time game in Seattle for one of the famed Stewart twins?
Might be, as Lodrick Stewart comes to town with USC tonight to play the Huskies. With Rodrick at Kansas and no guarantee of an NBA future for either, it’s just possible this could be the last time one of the Stewart twins falls into the Seattle spotlight.
So I wrote about Lodrick Stewart’s sometimes tumultuous but ultimately fulfilling career at USC today. He freely admits he spent most of his first two years there wondering why he hadn’t stayed home to attend UW — early in the process, there was ample chance that could have happened, though once the Huskies took Tre Simmons, there was no longer room for both, which turned out to be the deal breaker.
And how different might history have developed if that had happened?
To address a couple of other issues:
— One reader asked why UW no longer plays as much pressure defense. That is simply a function of the team’s personnel. The coaches have adjusted this year since the Huskies don’t have the players to run the same kind of defense. But next year, with Venoy Overton coming in and Tim Morris and Joel Smith back in the mix, I’d expect the pressure defense to return.
— There is no live TV tonight of any kind. The only way to see the game is in person, or to watch the delayed telecast on FSN following the WSU-UCLA game.
