Overton and Dentmon together?

Those of you who attended the SPU game saw that the Huskies were often at their best with Justin Dentmon and Venoy Overton together.
It’s a pairing that the Huskies liked, as well, and I explored in a story today the possibility that the two could start together.
Obviously, two 5-11 players would create some defensive problems at times. But it would also create some matchup problems the other way, as well, and would be a way to improve UW’s ballhandling.
The upshot, however, is that it definitely seems like Dentmon and Overton aren’t an either/or proposition, one only getting minutes at the other’s expense..
IN OTHER NEWS:
Arizona survived a sluggish start before winning an exhibition game last night.
— Speaking of Arizona, here’s a column demanding that Lute Olson shed some light on his reasons for leaving.
— Cal clubbed Alaska-Fairbanks last night with sophomore guard Patrick Christopher pouring in 32 points. That could be a pretty significant development for the Bears as Cal needs some guards to emerge.
— Three Pac-10 teams play their first regular season games tonight as UCLA hosts Portland State, Stanford hosts Harvard and Washington State hosts Eastern Washington.
