Wrapping it up

A Saturday morning potpourri:
— Here’s more from the Long Beach Press Telegram on the decision by Long Beach State to pass on Cameron Dollar and instead hire Dan Monson. LBSU athletic director Vic Cegles says Dollar’s violations at UW in 2002 had nothing to do with the decision and that Dollar will be “a star in this business” but that for now, Monson was a better fit. Time, obviously, will tell.
— As we reported here before but which is again relevant, Long Beach State will play at UW next season, meaning we’ll all get to again ponder what might have been had Monson accepted the Huskies job in 2002 instead of Lorenzo Romar. And get an early indication if the 49ers are better off with Monson than they might have been with Dollar.
— Speaking of the schedule, UW apparently needs just one more home game before finalizing its 2007-08 schedule. But UW is also still waiting to hear official word that it will host the opening rounds of the preseason NIT, as is expected. So don’t count on seeing an official schedule until all of that is cleared up, which could still be a little while.
— With LBSU finally making a decision, things around the Huskies are beginning to settle. The spring letter of intent period starts next week and the Huskies are expected to sign Venoy Overton and nobody else (the other three incoming players signed in November). That will leave the roster at 14 scholarship players not including Spencer Hawes, whom it’s probably best to consider as gone for now. But as we’ve detailed before, UW can get to the limit of 13 if Tim Morris moves to walk-on status, as has been agreed on if necessary. At this time, everybody else on the current roster is expected back next year.
— And speaking of Hawes, his final decision doesn’t figure to come for a while. He can’t do any official workouts until the Orlando pre-draft camp, which begins May 29. He’ll then embark on what figures to be a whirlwind three weeks, as he can conduct individual workouts following that camp until the June 18 deadline to officially declare or pull out and return to college. Until May 29, Hawes will be working out on his own, while also still doing some informal things with his UW teammates, preparing for Orlando.
