Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

January 15, 2010 at 2:40 PM

Up next: The California Golden Bears

Thought I’d pass along some quick notes and quotes from today.
Spoke with Washington Coach Lorenzo Romar and a few players before today’s practice.
The team is adopting a one-game-at-a-time mentality, but when pressed they’ll admit playing Cal is a huge game.
There’s no denying tomorrow morning’s game against California is one of the biggest of the season for Washington.
The winner stands to reap the benefits in March. Cal looks to pull out a pair of wins on the road, which has only been accomplished once so far this season. Arizona State could do it also tomorrow in Corvallis, Ore.
For the Huskies, they need a victory to get back into the conference race. If they can protect home court the rest of the season and split in the road games, that should be enough to warrant an invitation to the NCAA tournament.
HAITI RELIEF:
— The University of Washington is teaming with World Vision and urging fans to “Fill the Bucket” before tomorrow’s game. Cash donations will help traumatized Haitian children and families suffering in the aftermath of ease the needs of residents of Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake.
HERE’S SOME QUOTES FROM PRACTICE:
Quincy Pondexter:
(On the game)
“As of right now, we are the defending champion. I know we haven’t been playing like it these past couple of weeks, but we’ve been changing things around lately. We have to defend our home court and we have to defend that championship.”
Isaiah Thomas:
(What are your thoughts about Cal?) “They’re good. They got everybody returning. They’re a veteran team. They know the ins and outs of this league. They know what to expect. But we’re good too so we’re going to be ready for them.”
(Did you see Jerome Randle had 39 points last night?) “Yeah, I (saw) that. He’s a good player.”

(Does that scare you?)
“No. (chuckles) Not at all.)
(What did you learn about him last year?) “He’s good. He’s small like me. He got a little bit of handles. He can shoot it from anywhere. He’s a good player. Nothing we haven’t seen though. No need to panic. He scored 39. He’s a good player, but we’ll be ready.”
(Is this game being billed as the defending champion vs. the top challenger?) “Yeah. But with this year the Pac-10 being so up and down that anybody can beat anybody and anybody can win this league.”
