No shakeup coming

The worst home loss in more than four years might have seemed on the surface like the time to shake things up a bit.
But UW coach Lorenzo Romar said today the lineup for tomorrow’s game against Cal will almost certainly be the same as it was for Thursday night’s 65-51 loss to Stanford.
“I haven’t seen a pattern yet,” he said. “I think you change lineups when you start to see a negative pattern somewhere.”
Instead, Romar said the team has to find “a way to rise above” its current struggles.
The problems last night were many in Romar’s eyes — the team wasn’t real ready to play, a rarity for a home game; its defense wasn’t at the level it had been; its offensive spacing was suspect.
“We stood around and got caught up in throwing it inside and stand and watch,” Romar said. “And against that team that’s just difficult.”
Romar thinks the problems are fixable, and isn’t ready yet to push any panic buttons, though another home loss could change that thinking.
“Let’s just hope that was an aberration,” he said.
BROCKMAN UPDATE: Jon Brockman revealed after the game that he has been suffering from a slight groin strain. But it has not caused him to miss any practice and it isn’t expected to limit his play against Cal. He was on the floor for 34 minutes against Stanford despite the injury. Brockman has been sitting out portions of practice at times of late, but mostly to try to keep him fresh and not because of the injury.
