Following his post-game interview (above), Lorenzo Romar talked about Monday’s practice and the need to keep the Huskies focused. He didn’t allow himself much time to enjoy tonight’s 65-60 win at Stanford.

Romar said he was proud of Washington’s effort and particularly the way the players handled themselves in the final minutes of a close game when the outcome was in doubt.

He said explained the rationale behind using 6-7 Desmond Simmons to defend 6-10 Dwight Powell rather than 7-0 Aziz N’Diaye, who was forced to matchup against 6-7 Josh Huestis. Romar said he debated the who would guard Powell and settled on Simmons.

That decision may have won the Huskies the game. Powell still got his points, but he had to work hard for them. Meanwhile, Huestis was a non-factor offensively.
