Huskies in Oklahoma

The Huskies are making their way to Stillwater today for tomorrow’s game against the Cowboys.
Here’s a good overview of how the Cowboys head into that game from the Stillwater NewsPress.
As for the Huskies, it sounds like they will be down one more player, though due to injury only. Apparently, guard Adrian Oliver is unlikely to play while battling a back injury. Some of you have asked about Oliver given that he hasn’t been playing much.
I talked to him on Wednesday and he said he was still struggling to get past the knee injury he suffered against Utah. Throw a back injury in, and this has been a tough season for Oliver so far. He continues to wear a mask due to the broken nose he suffered in Greece. It’s mostly by choice now, but he said he’s had several occasions where balls have hit hit nose and it has hurt quite a bit, so he wants to keep wearing the mask. He said the mask doesn’t bother him.
As for not playing as much as he would have liked, he said he understands that the team is deeper in the backcourt this year than it was last season.
“Whoever coach Romar puts on the court is whoever he thinks has a good chance to win that game,” Oliver said Wednesday. “Of course there’s going to be more competition and more guys battling in the backcourt for minutes, but that’s what you want. We are a better team than we were last year and that’s all we can ask for. It’s not about any individual’s pride or stats, it’s about us getting more wins than we got last year.”
