Husky Men's Basketball

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

October 10, 2007 at 9:09 AM

Season approaching

Official practices are almost here, so thought I’d lay out a little of what is to come:
— The Huskies will meet the media tomorrow to kick off the season, so expect some news and notes from that.
— The team will then head to St. Martin’s College in Lacey for a weekend “training camp.” The first day it can officially practice is Friday. These workouts aren’t open to the public or media as the point is to get away and start off the season in privacy. This is what UW did the first four years of Lorenzo Romar’s tenure. The Huskies didn’t do it last year to accomodate Midnight Madness, but decided to scrap Madness this year to again get away for the weekend.
— Pac-10 media day is Nov. 1 in Los Angeles. That is when the official media poll is announced. I haven’t done my yet (I’ll post it when I do) but I’m doubting UW will be much higher than No. 6 in the official poll, and could conceivably be as low as No. 8 depending on how highly people think of Cal.
— Here’s UW’s schedule, which as you can see, has the Huskies hitting the floor for the first time on Nov. 5 against Seattle Pacific in an exhibition game. The first regular season game is Nov. 13 in the pre-season NIT against New Jersey Tech.
— Think if I had to name a starting lineup for UW today it would be Justin Dentmon, Tim Morris, Quincy Pondexter, Jon Brockman and Matthew Bryan-Amaning. I don’t think they will want to rush Joe Wolfinger that much to start in the middle and as noted last week, not sure Artem Wallace is going to be that guy, either. But I think this is a season when you could see a lot of experimenting with the lineups, especially early on and especially in the backcourt.
