Pondexter cleared for Saturday

It was never seriously in doubt, but Quincy Pondexter said this afternoon he’ll play Saturday in the regular-season finale against Washington State at Edmundson Pavilion.
The 6-6 junior guard from Fresno, Calif. suffered bruised ribs late in the first half of Tuesday’s 87-60 non-conference win over Seattle University. Pondexter fell hard to the floor on a layup with 4:17 remaining before halftime. He left the game and returned briefly in the second half.
Pondexter did not undergo X-rays, but said “I’ll be fine.”
“I woke up pretty rough this morning,” he said. “It was a tough feeling getting up and moving around. It was really sore, the whole area. Just tender. But I’ll be fine. It’s just a matter of time. Thank God we got a couple of days before we play.”
During his weekly press conference with the local media, coach Lorenzo Romar said he intends to honor the tradition he’s established on Senior Day and start three seniors, Jon Brockman, Justin Dentmon and Artem Wallace.
Wallace, who hasn’t started since last season, will replace freshman Darnell Gant.
Romar spoke at length about losing the seniors and the impact they’ve had on this championship season.
— On Brockman: “He means far more than anyone would ever imagine. … He has meant quite a bit. He has been a staple for us.”
—- On Wallace: “It’s unfortunate what happened with his knee injury, but he is someone that’s never complained and has just been there. Been ready to come in and do whatever is asked of him.”
— On Dentmon: “(He’s) started out really well, took a dip and ended far better than anyone would ever want to give him credit for. … His story, to me, is as remarkable as anyone’s.”
As for Washington State, Romar said the 20-point blowout win doesn’t necessarily give the Cougars any extra motivation. He said the Dawgs “earned a little credibility,” from that game.
