THE FINAL IS 88-47 HUSKIES — I’ll have some post-game stuff later.
IT’S NOW 84-40 — With 2:24 left, and the fans are streaming out. Adrian Oliver is concluding a nice game, as he has 11 points which ties the second-best total of his career (14 last year against Eastern Washington).
UW NOW AHEAD 68-34 WITH 7:47 LEFT — And UW has calmed down the TOs a little, with four in the second half for 16 for the game. NJIT has 26.
JUSTIN HOLIDAY IS CHECKING INTO THE GAME — With 11:12 left, so that will mean every Husky has played other than Gant, who is now redshirting, and Appleby, who is hurt. The decision on Gant and the fact that Holiday is playing solidifies what team will look like this season.
UW NOW AHEAD 55-31 — Still a little too much sloppy play, and one other negative is that Quincy Pondexter only has one point — he didn’t take a shot in the first half in 13 minutes.
UW SCORES LAST 10 OF THE FIRST HALF — To make it a 45-24 game at halftime. Overton keyed the surge with two nice passes that turned into assists — including an Oliver three-pointer — and then scoring on a drive of his own. One stat Romar has to be happy with — UW took at least three charges in the first half.
HUSKIES IN A LITTLE LULL — It’s 32-22 with five minutes left in the first half as UW has run into a little rut, losing nine turnovers already for the half.
THE HUSKIES ARE AHEAD 30-18 — With 7:49 left in the first half. They have hit 5-6 three-pointers, including one by Joe Wolfinger. UW is wearing its gold uniforms tonight and these seem to look a little better than the white ones of the exhibition gam.
UW MISSED ITS FIRST SIX FREE THROWS — Before finally hitting one. UW also forced nine turnovers in the first eight minutes of the game.
THE ROUT IS ALREADY ON — As UW leads 17-3. NJIT opened in a zone and the Huskies hit 3-4 three-pointers — one each by Joel Smith, Adrian Oliver and Justin Dentmon.
PRE-GAME — Having some computer troubles up here, but I’ll try to do a running thread for this game, especially since it is not on TV.
Utah beat High Point pretty easily in the first game and the Utes will be a challenge for UW tomorrow night (assuming UW avoids the mammoth upset in this game). Utah has some size and some good shooters and is a heady team that seems to play good defense. But UW figures to have more quickness and athleticism and maybe the depth up front to at least throw a lot of fouls at 7-1 center Luke Nevill.
First on the agenda to watch tonight is how well the Dentmon-Overton backcourt works. UW coach Lorenzo Romar showed Overton a lot of confidence by starting him in his first game here.
