Andrew Andrews doubtful for Thursday

During an interview with KJR-AM this morning, coach Lorenzo Romar said redshirt freshman point guard Andrew Andrews (sprained ankle) is doubtful to play Thursday against Seattle University.

Romar also addressed Washington’s recent slow starts.

“It’s an issue that we met and talked about,” he said. “We watched film yesterday. We discussed it at length as a team. It’s something that has been unfortunate, but I do think our guys are aware of it and I do think we have been committed as a team not to let that happen again.”

In the past two games, the Huskies allowed 43 first-half points to Cal State Fullerton and Nevada had 34 points before intermission. Washington recovered and knocked off Fullerton, but were upset at home by Nevada.

When asked if the Huskies were a passive team, Romar said: “Maybe we’re such good kids that fire isn’t always there where it needs to be. … In spite of our makeup, because our team realize this, we’ll be doing something about this soon.”

Despite the 4-4 start and three early home defeats, Romar said: “I’m still pretty optimistic that we’re going to get this together and right the ship and come out playing with more fire and turn this around.”

TUESDAY MORNING LINKS:

— UW play-by-play announcer Bob Rondeau also went on the air this morning with KJR-AM. He said the rash of injuries are mostly responsible for the Huskies’ 4-4 record.

Darin Johnson, who signed a letter of intent with UW, has not yet been cleared to play this season after transferring to Sheldon High in Sacramento, Calif. Without Johnson, Sheldon lost 71-65 to Archbishop Mitty and Aaron Gordon, who scored a game-high 24 points last Saturday. Gordon is being recruited by UW, Arizona and Kentucky.

Big top 10 showdown Saturday between No. 8 Arizona and No. 5 Florida.
