Midday notes

Great live chat with Bob Condotta, who is pulling double duty covering the Mariners in Arizona and keeping up with the Dawgs.
This has been a banner day for the Huskies, who improved to No. 13 in the coaches poll and had Jon Brockman capture the team’s first Pac-10 Player of the Week honor this season.
Well, the good news just keeps on coming. Lorenzo Romar was named one of 10 finalists for the Jim Phelan National Coach of the Year award.
The other finalists include: Jim Calhoun (Connecticut), John Calipari (Memphis), Jamie Dixon (Pittsburgh), Darrin Horn (South Carolina), Trent Johnson (LSU), Bill Self (Kansas), Brad Stevens (Butler), Bruce Weber (Illinois) and Roy Williams (North Carolina).
Considering this distinction, it would seem Romar is nearly a lock to win the Pac-10 Coach of the Year award. However, many media members believe Oregon State’s Craig Robinson is more deserving. California’s Mike Montgomery is also drawing consideration.
The Pac-10 awards will be announced March 9.
Other notes:
— Tuesday’s nonconference game against Seattle University is officially sold out. However, anyone wanting tickets should check with the UW ticket office tomorrow morning because extra tickets are sometimes released.
— Someone asked in a previous post about fans rushing the court after a game, so I asked a UW official what he thought about that practice. Obviously, the official party line is the school and the Pac-10 Conference frown on that type of behavior. Still, it’s not something they can prevent, and it’s not something that they will promote. Edmundson Pavilion security officials will no doubt prepare for these things for Saturday’s game if UW beats Washington State.
— The Huskies are back at practice this afternoon after taking Sunday off.
