Romar radio show notes

Monday means the weekly Lorenzo Romar radio show, though tonight, he was there in name only, instead out on the road recruiting (though I don’t know where).
So he sent assistant Cameron Dollar in his place.
I actually didn’t get to listen to much of the show, so I don’t have a lot to pass along. But I did hear a few things I thought were interesting:
— Dollar said one reason Quincy Pondexter has been successful of late is that “he’s doing a great job of taking money shots more often and not getting out of his comfort zone. And then he always has a rebounding advantage because of how athletic he is and how hard he goes to the glass.”
— He said that one of the biggest problems in the Cal game was “not being patient and getting antsy” on offense. He said especially on the road, that can get worse as the game wears on and players try to quickly make plays to get back in the game.
— Asked why UW didn’t press more in the Cal game once behind, Dollar said the coaches didn’t think the situation was ideal for that strategy. “We kind of pick our spots (to press),” he said. “It goes back to matchups. Against some teams, it’s better to pressure than others. It really goes game-to-game, moment-to-moment, with how you think you can create opportunities to get things done.”
