Romar’s review, part one

Here’s a little more of our review of the season, and look ahead to next year, with UW coach Lorenzo Romar. Romar discussed a lot of different aspects of the team, providing an overview of each player, and I’ll present his quotes in no particular order other than just how we discussed them at the time.
On whether Venoy Overton can challenge for a starting job next season: “Absolutely. I thought Venoy made a big improvement this year in a lot of areas. With a lot of guys on our team, this off-season is going to be like their season because it will go a long way in determining how good this team is going to be and how well guys play next year.
On what Overton needs to work on for next year and if outside shooting would be the most important of those things: “I think that helps. The only guy I’ve seen as good as on the ball as him is Ryan Francis (the former USC point guard). Aside from that, I’ve not seen anyone as good on the ball as Venoy Overton. So that right there, he’s got to play. And when the other things come along, being able to knock down the open shot and decision making, boy, that makes him an even different player, as good as he is now.”
On what Justin Holiday needs to do next season: “More of the same (as Overton). With some guys it’s just being able to knock down an open shot. And again, he creates so much havoc on the defensive end if he comes on the offensive end and keeps teams honest, doesn’t mean scoring, but he’s got to be a threat to score, when teams don’t guard you being able to knock down a shot on a consistent basis. That makes him a different player. With a lot of our guys if we can come back next year and be a better-shooting team, that is going to help. I think when you start talking about the absence of Jon Brockman and Justin Dentmon, we are going to be a different-looking team. But we may be able to compensate in areas like that.”
On Elston Turner’s season and future: “Once he got healthy and in condition, I thought he really began to help us down the stretch. You could just see that he was ready to go. I go back to Tre Simmons — people thought he was just a shooter but he could handle the ball and was a good passer and rebounder, he did a lot more than jus tshoot it. And Elston’s a good passer and has a really good feel for the team. He has a chance next year to do a lot more than he did this year.”
