Some reaction from UW

After the euphoria died down of being a four seed and in Portland, the reality began to hit the Huskies of what a tough challege awaits in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
The general reaction was one of surprise that they will get a team with the resume of Mississippi State in the first round.
“I was surprised that Mississippi State was a 13 seed, no doubt,” said UW coach Lorenzo Romar. “You win the SEC Conference Tournament, it seems like you’d be better than a 13 seed. But that’s what it is.”
Guard Justin Dentmon, who said he caught the Bulldogs on TV a few times this year, said “I think they are a great team.”
“We’ve got two conference (tournament) champions in our bracket (the other being Purdue) so it’s like they are going to come into the tournament with momentum. But we are hungry. I expected a three seed, but we can’t take back what is already done.”
Dentmon said Mississippi State reminds him of UCLA in that “they like to run sets. So we’ve just got to take them out of what they want to do.”
