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

More from media day

I’ll try to keep passing along a few notes from media day now that the event is officially over.
— UW coach Lorenzo Romar, a Los Angeles native, is staying in town for the night with the team off from practice for today as its regularly scheduled day off. When the team does return to practice tomorrow, Darnell Gant will go full-court, full-speed for the first time this season. That will mean only Tyreese Breshers is still sidelined. But Romar said Breshers is doing a little more each day and has impressed in his time on the court. “He’s doing remarkably well for someone who hasn’t been out there for six months,” Romar said.
— The team will conduct a scrimmage Saturday and Romar said all but Breshers will be available.
— First-year Oregon State coach Craig Robinson was a popular subject due in part to his status as the brother-in-law of Barack Obama. Most of Robinson’s time on the podium was spent discussion that topic. Robinson said that thinking like a coach, he’s trying to just take it one step at a time. He is planning to be in Chicago on Election Night but otherwise said he has made no plans for how his life could change in the future. “To the extent that any plans have been made any further than that would be putting the cart before the horse,” he said.
— Interestingly, Robinson, a Chicago native, was recruited by the Huskies in 1979 before deciding to play at Princeton. Romar was his host on his trip, something Robinson reminded Romar of today. “I vaguely remember it,” Romar said. “I don’t remember what we did. “I remember that he was very low-maintanance. Very humble.”
Taylor Rochestie was supposed to represent WSU here but stayed home after injuring his shin late in Wednesday’s practice. Cougar coach Tony Bennett arrived here fearing a bad injury but said that X-ray results this morning showed no break. EDIT — This has been corrected. There was no MRI involved.
Jon Brockman was UW’s representative and got some time to hang out with one of his best friends, Stanford guard Mitch Johnson, who was here representing the Cardinal. I talked with Johnson for a while and he said he’s excited about the new look Stanford will have under first-year coach Johnny Dawkins, which will feature more up-a-down play.
— Brockman, Quincy Pondexter and Justin Dentmon have been voted by teammates as co-captains of the Huskies this year.
More later.
