Video: Lorenzo Romar’s press conference

Washington coach Lorenzo Romar touched on a variety of topics today at his weekly press conference including the Austin Seferian-Jenkin’s basketball debut Saturday, Terrence Ross’ slow starts in the past three games and Arizona State.
The Huskies are assuming ASU’s best player Trent Lockett will return from a right ankle injury.
“We’re going to assume that Trent Locket is playing,” Romar said. “We’re going to assume that and approach it that way. In terms of what we’re going to get out of them, they’re going to fight and they’re going to scrap until that horn goes off. … They’re going to play a tough zone to beat. That’s just kind of how they play.”
Seferian-Jenkins has taken minutes away from freshmen Shawn Kemp Jr. and Martin Breunig. Romar said: “They’ve maintained a great attitude,” despite being removed from the rotation last Saturday.
With C.J. Wilcox out and questionable for Thursday, the Huskies are thin in the back court. Romar said he’s never seriously considered burning the redshirt of freshman Andrew Andrews or senior Scott Suggs.
“Scott right now is practicing, but he has some discomfort in that foot,” Romar said. “If he were playing right now, he may be going through who knows what C.J. is going through right now where he’d have to rest it.
“No I’ve not been tempted (to burn his redshirt). I’ve teased him a couple of times, but no.”
