ISU aftermath

Not much to add tonight after an 82-50 win over Idaho State as I admittedly have a party to get ready for, so I’ll just pass along a couple quick notes.
Justin Dentmon suffered a hip pointer late in the first half but returned in the second half and should be fine.
Ryan Appleby said his back still isn’t 100 percent but is getting better and he hopes with four days until the WSU game it will heal.
— UW coach Lorenzo Romar liked what he saw today saying it would have been easy for the Huskies to be content with just getting a win. “I was pleased with our players’ maturity,” he said. “For 40 minutes, especially in the second half, we tried to execute offensively and defensively. That was the challenge we laid before our team before this game.”
— Idaho State coach Joe O’Brien said he wouldn’t pick a winner between UW and WSU — the Bengals lost to both teams decisively, losing 75-45 to WSU in Pocatello Dec. 23. But he did say that of the four Pac-10 teams ISU has played — UCLA and Oregon State are the others — that UW is the best at hitting the offensive boards. “They are the best offensive rebounding team we’ve played all year,” he said. “Washington is playing well right now. To win at LSU and then come all the way back home and do this — they just overwhelmed us.”
— O’Brien noted that his team is without any “true” point guards with two JC players having quit earlier in the season. “They exposed the fact we don’t have a point guard,” he said. “They came out and really, really defended the passing lanes and spread us out all over the court and made it damn near impossible to run offense.”
Have a Happy New Year.
