Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

March 8, 2007 at 8:43 PM

Late night with the Huskies

Get ready for what may be the latest starting game — in the Pacific time zone, anyway — in UW history.
Overtime of USC-Stanford means the Huskies may not tip until about 9:10 or so. the UConn game last year began about 10 p.m. local time back east, but I don’t ever remember a UW game that will go this late.
In fact, as I finish that at 8:48 p.m., UW has hit the court and it says 27 minutes on the clock. So that’s a 9:15 tip time at best.
Probably has no real impact on the game, but it does on those of us covering it. Our deadlines are now tighter than ever.
I think the Huskies would have preferred that Stanford won that game. But all that matters right now is trying to beat the Cougs.
One of you asked about how the teams feel about the tournament being here. The reality is that Fox is the financial backing for the tournament and the network wants it here, so this is where it is going to stay through at least 2011.
I think most coaches and school officials realize that money talks loudest and while in a perfect world, they’d prefer it be moved around, they know for now, this is where it has to stay. Several people have made the comparison with the Big East Tournament, which is played every year in New York. They hope that eventually, maybe this tournament can take on that feel.
