Decision time for Austin Seferian-Jenkins

Coach Lorenzo Romar said he’s talked to Austin Seferian-Jenkins who has made a decision on whether he’ll play basketball this season. The two-sport sophomore completed his football season last Saturday when Washington lost the Las Vegas bowl.

“Now that their bowl game is complete, I’m sure he’ll make some sort of announcement here pretty soon,” Romar told KJR-AM in an interview today.

Last season, Seferian-Jenkins turned out for the basketball team the second week in January. The 6-6, 258-pound forward appeared in 17 games and UW posted a 13-4 record. He played at least 15 minutes in three games and averaged 7.2 minutes, 1.1 points and 2.1 rebounds. Seferian-Jenkins found a spot in the rotation and gave the Huskies a toughness they had been missing.

Here’s some notes from the interview with KJR.

— In regards to UW’s four-game winning streak, Romar said “progress is being made at a snail’s pace.”

— The Huskies are getting healthier. Andrew Andrews (ankle) is better as is Shawn Kemp Jr. (knee). However, Scott Suggs (plantar fasciitis) still needs to sit out during practice from time to time.

— On Desmond Simmons, he said: “It’s been really good to see that whole thing unfold. … So many outside influences sometimes are telling you got to get yours, you got to do this (but) Desmond is one that he just looks at what he does best and on our team no one does it better.”

— On No. 3 Arizona, he said: “I’ve been following them closely. Been rooting for them. … Literally they’re two deep at every position.”
