Closing up Staples

It’s been a long day traveling and a long night here at the arena, and I have to head to the hotel soon, so I won’t have a long post right now.
But much of the talk afterward was of the time out with 7:46 left and ASU ahead 45-41 when Lorenzo Romar threw a clipboard on a seat and lit into his team.
Romar said he did it because the team didn’t seem to have a lot of energy “and this was not the time to not have a whole lot of energy.”
Duly inspired, UW finished the game on an 18-6 run to hold on to beat ASU 59-51.
It was a statistically sloppy game, but most games involving ASU this season have been — UW shot just 38.5 percent but held ASU to 40.4 and controlled the boards (39-28).
I thought Justin Dentmon’s play was huge as he had 13 points and three assists and two turnovers in 32 minutes. He has had just four turnovers in the last three games.
Now come the Cougars, and we’ll try to break down that game more tomorrow.
The Huskies, though, pronounced themselves ready.
“I can’t wait,” said center Spencer Hawes. “They’ve beaten us four in a row. It’s time to put an end to that.”
And no, Tim Morris did not play. For whatever reason, a lot of the national internet sites often insert players on the roster but not in uniform into the game. Morris won’t play this year.
