Not the last of Portland State

UW coach Lorenzo Romar has made it clear on a number of occasions that he would prefer not to play teams coached by close friends, such as Portland State, where former Husky assistant Ken Bone is the head man.
Romar agreed to a three-year deal with PSU, with all the games in Seattle, shortly after Bone got the job in part as a favor to his former assistant. Bone likes having a game in the Seattle area every year for recruiting purposes — he intends to continue trying to get players from this area.
Sunday’s game is the last of that original three-year deal, however, with UW beating the Vikings pretty easily the past two seasons.
But it won’t be PSU’s last appearance at Hec Ed any time soon.
The Huskies will host a four-team Basketball Travelers Classic tournament early next season and Portland State will be one of the invitees, meaning the two could face each other again — the other two opponents and matchups are still to be determined.
The Huskies are also set to play in the Maui Classic in 2010.
