Husky Men's Basketball

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

I’ll pass along a few things to read today:
First, here’s our story on the proposed new three-point line for the 2008-09 season from Bud Withers that includes a few quotes from UW coach Lorenzo Romar who expresses his approval.
Next, here’s a column from Frank Burlison of the Long Beach Press-Telegram that includes two interesting items.
First; there is a mention of Romar among those who was impressed by the play at a tournament in Las Vegas last weekend of James Rahon, a 6-3 junior guard at Torrey Pines High in Del Mar, Calif., “as the best jump shooter” at the event. Here’s a scouting profile of Rahon that lists UW as a school of interest.
Burlison also writes that USC may have another guard who graduates early from high school, ala Daniel Hackett this season, to help replace Gabe Pruitt should he follow through on plans to leave for the NBA. The guard in question is Angelo Johnson.
Lastly, here’s a column from Jeff Goodman at FoxSports.com listing Romar as one of 10 college coaches who are ready to go pro.
But I wouldn’t worry about Romar heading to the NBA anytime soon. I know I’ve written before saying he’s about to sign an extension of his current deal that was agreed on last fall, but my understanding is that it really is due to happen soon — among the things apparently delaying it was the situation with women’s basketball.
Romar also has said many times he really isn’t interested in coaching in the NBA.
He said last year flat out that the NBA isn’t an option unless he were to be fired and need work – that having played in it satisfied any curiosity about that league.
“I’ve said this and I really believe this — if it were just about winning and losing, it would get old,” he said at the time. “Because the way we operate as humans, the more you win, the more you want to win. The more money you make, the more money you want to make. That’s a never-ending chase. But when you talk about helping change someone’s life or investing in someone’s life for the rest of their lives, that’s priceless. That is worth more than any amount of wins. Any amount of money you can make.”
