Video: Lorenzo Romar on Utah, UW’s defense and C.J. Wilcox’s draft potential












Washington coach Lorenzo Romar touched on a variety of topics today including Saturday’s game against Utah, which is riding an 0-5 losing streak after finishing the non-conference season at 8-4. The Utes are 8-9 overall.

Romar attributed UW’s maturity to the improved defense. He noted the three starting guards have been with Washington at least four years while. He also said senior center Aziz N’Diaye, who has been at UW the past three seasons, is a big reason why the Huskies have held the past four opponents to fewer than 40 percent shooting.

In conference games, Washington is first in the Pac-12 in scoring defense (56.0 points per game) and second in field goal percentage defense (37.4 percent). The Huskies are also third in rebounding (38.5), second in rebounding margin (+ 5.8) and third in blocks (5.0).

Romar said he’s had the NBA talk with C.J. Wilcox and believes the junior guard will play the season out before making any type of decision about turning pro.

Romar believes Wilcox is an early candidate for Pac-12 MVP honors, but noted it’s still early in the conference season.
