Friday night notes

Clearing out the notebook. …
— As some of you have mentioned, UW forward Jon Brockman said today in an interview with Softy on KJR-AM that a couple of scouts for the Tampa Bay Bucs looked at him earlier this season. I asked Brockman about it when I saw him today at Hec Ed and he said the scouts were in town for UW’s football Pro Day (which was March 10) and stopped by Washington’s basketball practice to take a look at him and talk to him real fast. He said “I told them I play basketball and they said if you ever change your mind, let us know.” He wasn’t sure who the scouts were by name or anything.
— Speaking of Brockman, I asked UW caoch Lorenzo Romar on Thursday about Brockman’s play at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament — the coach was there for the entire thing. Romar said “he opened the right people’s eyes.” He also said that in the first game “they didn’t scout him so they weren’t blocking him out. So he got 21 rebounds — you can’t do that. He opened everyone’s eyes because you do not understand his value sometimes if you just look at statistics. You have to see what he does on that floor.”
— I also asked Romar what he thought about Abdul Gaddy’s play in the Nike Hoop Summit last week when he was held to three points in 13 minutes. “He’s a point guard, so as a point guard in that game, when he gave up the ball, he didn’t get it back,” Romar said. “So there was not a whole lot of opportunity to get a whole lot done. He’ll be fine.”
— And of Quincy Pondexter’s recent sports hernia surgery, Romar said “it’s routine. He’ll be back, ready to go (soon).” Romar said the injury bothered Pondexter much of the second half of the season. “To his credit he played through it and did a good job,” he said.
