UW winless in non-league ‘true’ road openers under Romar

The Huskies have a chance Sunday to do something no other Lorenzo Romar-led Washington team has ever done … win their non-conference road opener on an opponent’s home court.
UW is 0-8 in those games dating back to an 82-61 defeat Nov.30, 2002 at UNLV.
It’s been an unusual streak that’s included near wins at Texas A&M and Texas Tech in 2011 and ’10 respectively. There was the upset in 2008 at Portland, blowout losses at Oklahoma State and Wyoming and two defeats at Gonzaga.
Needless to say it hasn’t been pretty. But it could all turn around Sunday at Saint Louis.
Here’s a look at the streak in a little more detail.
Date ………………….. Opponent ………….. Result
Dec. 11, 2010 ……… Texas A&M ………… 63-62
Dec. 3, 2009 ……….. Texas Tech ………… 99-92 (OT)
Nov. 15, 2008 ……… Portland …………….. 80-74
Dec. 1, 2007 ……….. Oklahoma State ….. 96-71
Dec. 9, 2006 ……….. Gonzaga ……………. 97-77
Dec. 1, 2004 ……….. Gonzaga …………… 99-87
Dec. 6, 2003 ……….. Wyoming …………… 92-76
Nov. 30, 2002 ……… UNLV ………………… 82-61
*UW didn’t play a true non-conference road game in 2005-06.


Including neutral-site games, the Huskies are 11-19 under Romar in non-conference regular-season road games. They improve in the postseason and have a 8-6 record while overall they are 19-25.
Here’s the breakdown by season.
