A couple quick notes

A few of you have asked about the 2007-08 schedule in the wake of the school putting out notices for season ticket renewals this week.
What I’ve heard is that the entire schedule is not completed yet as the Huskies are still attempting to find one more opponent for a home game. Also, the field for the pre-season NIT is not yet set. The Huskies will host two games in the tournament, likely on Nov. 12 and Nov. 13, but the opponents are still to be determined (Utah is a possibility but not yet set).
So until all of that is completed, the final schedule is unlikely to be released. But the key parts of the schedule remain the same — a home game in December against Pitt, as well as home games against the likes of Eastern Washington, Long Beach State and Portland State, and road games at LSU and Oklahoma State.
AS FOR JRUE HOLIDAY, I know he was here on Thursday and played informally with a few current team members and alums who were around. One person who saw him play Thursday (no one affiliated with UW) compared him to a young Mitch Richmond.
As for judging the visit, I’d say that’s pretty tricky in any circumstance — I’ve almost never heard a recruit say he hated a visit or anything like that — but seems especially so in this case as Holiday has been very circumspect in everything he has said during the recruiting process.
He is expected to be in Portland today for the beginning of the Rose City Showcase. I won’t be able to attend, but the Oregonian promises full coverage of the event, including a live blog that may be worth monitoring for news on Holiday.
ALSO, I wrote yesterday that former Husky Donald Watts was expected to play in the 11-foot hoop game being held at Edmundson Pavilion Saturday at 1 p.m. I’m told today he won’t be playing. As of now, the only two players with Husky ties expected to participate are Brandon Burmeister and Sterling Brown, who was a member of a few Bob Bender-era teams.
