Husky Men's Basketball

Thursday practice notes

We’re getting close to game time. About 24 hours until tip off.
All of the teams in the Athletes in Action Classic are in town.
I got to watch some of Wright State’s practice from earlier today and sat in on Washington’s workout. Portland State is on the main court now. I believe Belmont was the first team to practice today.
From first glance, Wright State is a better than average. They’re taller than you’d expect. They ran a three-guard lineup and all three are at least 6-3. And their starting forwards are 6-9 and 6-7. I’ll have a more detailed scouting report tomorrow, but just wanted to give you some first impressions.
And none of the Raiders appeared to be in awe of their surroundings. As one Wright State assistant said: “This (Friday’s game) isn’t the biggest game on our schedule.” I believe that. Especially with No. 11 Butler in their conference.
Otherwise, it’s been a full and busy house at Bank of America Arena. Buses are everywhere. Student-athletes are streaming in and out of the doors.
There’s a lot of basketball activity inside the building, a cleanup crew is pressure cleaning the brick exterior facade, the UW volleyball is packing bags in the hallways preparing for a road trip tonight and the football team travels down to Corvallis, Ore. tomorrow to face the Beavers.
In the middle of all of this are the Huskies who had one final tune-up before Friday’s season opener. UW had a crisp workout and spent the first minutes practicing a halfcourt offensive set.
Later on, the big men worked on defensive positioning with assistants Jim Shaw and Paul Fortier while coach Lorenzo Romar and Raphael Chillious drilled the guards on one-on-one defense.
All for now.
