Live chat at 1:30, other notes

As the title says, I’ll hold a live chat at 1:30 p.m. from courtside of the Rose Garden before the game today.
In other news. …
— Our coverage today included Jerry Brewer’s column where he puts into perspective the accomplishment of UW coach Lorenzo Romar getting the Huskies to the second round of the tournament for the third time in five years.
— I looked at the recent shooting struggles of Isaiah Thomas in my game preview. And I also had this breakdown of the game with a score prediction — UW 64, Purdue 59./
— USA Today had a nice look at two of the bruisers in this game — UW’s Jon Brockman and Purdue’s Chris Kramer.
— BetFirms.com points out that UW has covered its last four NCAA tournament games and six of its last seven in non-conference. UW started as a two-point favorite but is down to one at some Las Vegas sports books.
— An Indiana look at the freshman point guards in this game.
— Indy Star columnist Bob Kravitz looks at the perceptions of the two games and how much of a home game this will be for UW.
— Here’s a good look at Justin Dentmon and Purdue’s Robbie Hummel.
— UCLA is losing to Villanova as I write this. I talked to Justin Holiday on Friday and asked him if he had talked with brother Jrue to share tournament experiences. He hadn’t then but said he had watched UCLA’s first-round win. “I didn’t like Darren (Collison) getting the ball from him at the end, but they still won so it’s all good,” he said.
Ken Pomeroy forecasts a 72-71 UW win, giving the Huskies a 53 percent chance to win.
— A good breakdown by Ted Miller of ESPN.com
Andy Staples of SI.com picks Purdue to win 54-52.
Back with the chat in a couple hours.
