Huskies installing new high-post offense

Plenty of changes on Montlake.
For starters, Washington introduced new assistant Brad Jackson, who spent the previous 27 years at Western Washington where he had become something of an icon.
Coach Lorenzo Romar also talked about installing a new high-post offense that will replace the team’s motion offense. Romar said he’s making the switch because the high-post offense better fits UW’s personnel. He also said the change was permanent meaning he’s going away from the motion offense he’s used for the last nine years.
Maybe it’s a coincidence, but Jackson has run some form of a high-post offense during his time at WWU.
And finally, there’s a new scoreboard at Alaska Airlines Arena. It’s huge. There are also video boards over each section parallel to the court.
Quick notes from today’s press conferences and interviews with players.
— When asked which player has surprised him the most, Romar said redshirt freshman Jernard Jarreau.
— Romar talked about long-time UW usher George Hickman who passed away over the weekend. He was 88.
— Washington will play seven games during its Europe/Africa tour. The opponents include: Barcelona, Zaragoza, Antibes, Monaco, Paris-Levallois, Rueil and a team in Dakar, Senegal.
— Junior C.J. Wilcox believes the team chemistry will be much better this season. He said there were times last season when not everyone bought into the philosophy. When asked which players he misses the most, he said: “It’s strange not having Terrence (Ross) out here.”
— Senior Aziz N’Diaye said he’s been unable to do much of anything this summer after undergoing surgery on his left wrist. He’s expected to be cleared to play Tuesday.
— I’ll post videos later.
