Friday update

With a game approaching Sunday against Montana, UW coach Lorenzo Romar held a conference call this afternoon to give a quick update on his team. Here are a few highlights:
— Romar said UW is still working with Lehigh to attempt to reschedule the Dec. 23 game that was postponed due to weather. However, he said “we are having difficulty getting dates that don’t conflict with both programs.” He said there’s a chance UW will simply lose the game — he said there has not yet been any real talk of trying to find another opponent while discussions continue with Lehigh. The school has not yet figured out what might happen to tickets purchased for that game while still waiting to see if it can be rescheduled.
— The team has been off since Dec. 23 so there isn’t much to update in terms of personnel. Players will be back for a practice tonight. Romar said all indications are that Jon Brockman’s ankle continues to get better.
— There is still no decision on whether Tyreese Breshers will redshirt.
— Romar said every player on the team “had a place to go” for Christmas so there was no need for him to take anyone in, as sometimes happens.
— Asked if he’d noticed the 27 and 31 points scored by former Husky Adrian Oliver in his first two games at San Jose State, Romar said he had. “It’s great,” Romar said. “He could score. He’s a scorer, there’s no doubt about that.”
— UW is back in action Sunday at noon against Montana, a strange time for a game, but one set for TV purposes. I’ll have more on Montana in a later post, but worth nothing the Griz has six players from the state of Washington on its roster. Among those is Ryan Staudacher of Lake Washington, who for a while considered walking-on at UW. Also on Montana’s roster is Jack McGillis, a Montana native who had decided to walk-on at UW in the spring of 2005 before getting a scholarship to Oregon State. He then transferred home to Montana where he is now in his first season.
