The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Brockman status uncertain

I’ll try to have some more rehash of the game a little later.
But the big news for the Huskies now is the uncertainty of forward Jon Brockman, who suffered a sprained left ankle with 1:56 left in the second overtime.
Brockman said that “right now, I couldn’t play.”
And he doesn’t have much time to get better as UW will face Cal Wednesday in the first round of the Pac-10 tournament in Los Angeles.
But Brockman said that “if it’s just a sprain, I’m playing.”
That was the initial diagnosis afterward, but the injury will be further examined Sunday in Seattle. If it’s anything more, he’s almost certainly done for the year.
Even if it’s just a sprain, it could be hard for him to be anywhere near 100 percent with such a short turnaround. He had the foot in a boot and left the arena on crutches.
That’s ominous for the Huskies, who dearly want to play more basketball, feeling like they are beginning to turn a corner with what is still a relatively young team. The Huskies are cautiously optimistic they have some sort of post-season awaiting no matter what happens, but a win against Cal, which would assure a winning record at the end of the regular season for UW (which is now 16-15) would likely all but clinch at least a spot in the CBI.
