Huskies miss out on Jennings, other notes

I’m pretty much done with commitments to other areas of the newspaper (specifically, writing hydroplane stories) so I’ll try to start paying more attention to the blogs now.
One thing to address is that the Huskies apparently have lost out on big man Terrence Jennings, who according to this story is headed to Maryland.
That appears to leave shooting guard Scott Suggs as the top target left for UW”s Class of 2008.
UW already has three commits for the Class of 2008 in forward Tyreese Breshers and guards Isaiah Thomas and Elston Turner, Jr. Turner, by the way, will play his senior year of basketball in Houston after his father recently got a job with the Rockets.
The commitments of those three mean UW is already at 14 committed scholarships for the 2008-09 season, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Huskies didn’t get any other players.
Here’s a review of where things stand for 08-09:
08-09 roster
SENIORS
G – Justin Dentmon
F – Jon Brockman
C – Artem Wallace
G – Joel Smith
JUNIORS
C – Joe Wolfinger
F – Quincy Pondexter
G – Adrian Oliver
SOPHOMORES
F – Matthew Bryan-Amaning
F – Darnell Gant
G – Justin Holiday
G – Venoy Overton
FRESHMEN
G – Isaiah Thomas
G – Elston Turner
F – Tyreese Breshers
TOTAL 14.
A FEW OTHER ITEMS: Several of you have wondered how the team is looking in the informal summer workouts. I haven’t done much with those this year because since the team is going to Greece, we’ll have a great chance to see them in organized fashion. Practices start Aug. 17 with the team playing in Greece from Aug. 27 to Sept. 6 (incoming freshmen, however, cannot participate).
With the Greece trip looming, not much is going on with the team right now. Some players are still home for a little break and others are working at Lorenzo Romar’s camps at UW.
— Also, no new word on Venoy Overton’s situation and there won’t be for a while. He’s taking some summer school extension courses and his eligibility won’t be determined until those are completed, which could be another month or two.
— There is nothing new on UW’s schedule for next season other than what I have previously reported. The Huskies have yet to hear of confirmed opponents for the NIT and are still attempting to schedule one more non-conference home game.
— And speaking of Thomas, he played well over the weekend at the Nike Global Challenge making the all-tournament team after averaging 26 points per game. Sounds as if it has been nothing but a positive summer for him.
