Romar after WSU defeat: “We should have got the ball inside”

Had a chance to listen to Lorenzo Romar’s weekly radio show. Here’s the highlights:
— Washington took 31 three-pointers in its 87-80 loss at Washington State, however, 17 treys were uncontested and the Huskies made 11 of those attempts. According to Romar, UW missed all 14 contested treys. After the game, he said there were about three bad shots and on Monday he amended that statement and said UW had “seven too many” three-pointers.
Matthew Bryan-Amaning missed seven of eight shots and while it seemed as if the Huskies should have went to him more on the offensive end, Romar noted the 6-foot-9 senior forward attempted eight free throws. WSU had foul troubles early in the second half and Romar said: “We should have got the ball inside. We probably shot too many contested threes. … We didn’t do a good job of looking in there enough.”


— Romar countered the assertion the week off had a negative effect against the Huskies because the Cougars had the same schedule.
— Romar said junior forward Darnell Gant “did a really nice job. … The last four games, he’s done a good job.” Romar made particular mention that Gant is rebounding better than ever before.
Aziz N’Diaye played just nine minutes and Romar said the 7-foot sophomore center “right now is better suited” to play against man-to-man defenses. According to Romar, N’Diaye has no problems playing against fast teams, but he struggles when facing smaller opponents.
— Romar said that in the past few years whichever teams wins the conference title usually produces the Pac-10 Player of the Year.
— Romar was asked why Venoy Overton played just eight minutes even though he had four fouls. Romar considered putting the senior guard back in the game but said: “When you sit out that long, it takes you awhile to get into a groove.”
— Romar said Oregon’s new Matt Arena is good for the Pac-10 because “when teams in our league get better that means our league gets better.”
