Husky Men's Basketball

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

Brockman questionable and tickets still, uh, available

Two bits of news to pass along:
— First, Jon Brockman did not practice today, meaning he has not practiced since spraining his ankle against WSU March 8. A team spokesman said he is “very questionable” to play Wednesday against Valparaiso and Quincy Pondexter is now listed as the official starter at forward alongside the four regulars in the lineup for tomorrow. Brockman said Monday he was “confident” he would be able to play some, and coaches will make a gametime decision tomorrow as to whether to use him. Pondexter started the Cal game in Brockman’s place, scoring 23 points.
— Next, tickets aren’t exactly flying out the door. A spokesman said about 2,000 tickets had been sold as of Tuesday afternoon. However, he said UW officials aren’t necessarily disappointed, saying they anticipated that many people might buy tickets at the door, knowing tickets will be available. However, UW officials will be hoping for a large walk-up gate to get the 5,000 or so they feel is necessary to break even and pay off the $60,000 guarantee for hosting a game. Tickets are $15 for the general public, and $5 for students.
Mostly, they are hoping to do better than the last time games were held here that weren’t part of a season ticket package. Those games came in November, 2005 when the Huskies hosted the Black Coaches Association Classic, which was also organized by The Gazelle Group. UW played three games in that tournament and none drew more than 3,976, with a low of 3,217. That was the beginning of Brandon Roy’s senior season when UW was coming off its first of two straight Sweet 16 appearances.
But so far, the CBI doesn’t seem to be attracting much interest. Virginia drew 4,022 for its game tonight against Richmond (the Cavaliers drew 11,893 for its season opener against Vermont, for what it’s worth), while Ohio drew 1,169 for its game tonight against Brown and Old Dominion 2,036 for its game against Rider.
