Tuesday practice report

Only seven players took part in practice today.
The healthy included: Quincy Pondexter, Isaiah Thomas, Abdul Gaddy, Elston Turner, Scott Suggs and C.J. Wilcox. Justin Holiday was off to the side and looks as if he’s still recovering from offseason hernia surgery.
Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Tyreese Breshers wore surgical masks while watching in street clothes from the stands.
The rest of the players were home with the flu.
Apparently, Pondexter and Suggs made a quick recovery because they were initially hit by the flu-like symptoms.
The media is allowed to watch the first 15 minutes of practice and during that period the team seperated in shooting drills dividided by the point guards (Thomas and Gaddy), shooters (Turner and Wilcox) and wings (Pondexter and Suggs).
The Turner-Wilcox pairing were blazing. During one drill, Wilcox sank 12 of 14 three-pointers from the top of the arc. Thomas and Turner were also deadly accurate and Pondexter sank several long-range shots.
The Huskies practice every day this week and those sessions are closed to the media, including Thursday’s walk-on tryouts. I’ll write more about those tomorrow.
Coach Lorenzo Romar hopes to have enough guys return before Sunday’s scrimmage at St. Mary’s that’s closed to the public. However, he said if UW had to play a game today that the Huskies would be able to play.
“If you have five, you can play,” he said. “But in some cases … If we had to play a game tonight or we had to play yesterday when we had so many guys out, I think they could have played. they would have been down, they would have been sick, but it’s more precautionary so everyone else doesn’t get it.”
