Breaking down the roster

With the addition Monday of swingman C.J. Wilcox to the fold for the 2009-10 season, time to look again at how UW’s roster shapes up.

Comment: That obviously is 14 players, so something is going to have to give as UW coach Lorenzo Romar said again last week that the Huskies will be down to just 13 scholarships when the school year starts. With all of the newcomers claiming they will be academically eligible, and everybody else expected to return, that seems to leave the best guess that someone moves off scholarship for the year, but nothing has been said publicly. Since UW will have to get to 13 scholarships for the year, assuming the rest stays the same, the Huskies should have three scholarships available for the 2009-10 season.

Comment: That’s 11 committed scholarships for the 2009-10 season, though that’s assuming everything stays status quo, which rarely happens these days in college basketball. So as stated above, that means at least two more scholarships to give. The roster breaks down to four big players and seven perimeter players (counting Pondexter among the latter, where he usually plays), so the emphasis would seem to be on getting at least one more big player with the scholarships that are left — Romar said at the end of last season he wanted to sign a big player or two for this class. But one thing we’ve learned the last few years is that the Huskies will always try to squeeze in as many players as possible, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they took four players for this class and worked it out later.
