Washington coach Lorenzo Romar talks about the possible return of Scott Suggs and Shawn Kemp Jr. at today’s press conference.

Both will need to practice pain-free Thursday and Friday before being cleared to play Saturday against Nevada.
Here’s a few other items from Romar.

  • He said Washington (4-3) has played the “toughest part of our non-conference schedule,” noting games against Ohio State, Seton Hall and Nevada. Romar said: “I wish the record was different, but it’s not.”
  • Romar acknowledged the Huskies aren’t scoring as many points as his other teams, but believes that’s largely because UW has played slow-tempo teams.
  • Romar said redshirt freshman Jernard Jarreau has “been thrown in there” in terms of the starting lineup. However, Romar didn’t say he plans on changing starters.
  • Washington swapped from its high-post offense to a motion offense in each of the past two games and Romar thinks it’s a benefit to being versatile.
  • Romar said Desmond Simmons plays best when he’s “getting lost (in the game) and not being concerned about made or missed (shots).” Romar indicated Simmons will continue to come off the bench even though he plays starter minutes. He said “it takes a special” to embrace that role and noted others who did that were Brandon Roy, Tre Simmons and C.J. Wilcox.
  • Romar wasn’t anxious to revisit last season’s defeat to Nevada. The Huskies controlled most of the game, but were undone by late-game miscues.
  • Romar acknowledged the slow starts recently and said he’s working on ways to fix it.
