Lorenzo Romar talked about Sunday’s Washington’s Alumni Game.
After picking the rosters for both teams, he said a few former UW asked which team Jon Brockman was going to play with. According to Romar, Isaiah Thomas was happy upon learning that he was paired with Brockman, the school’s second all-time scoring leader. Thomas is sixth on the list.
Romar believes Sunday’s game could be the last public competitive outing for Brandon Roy, who had a comeback attempt cut short this season due to a reoccurring knee injury.
Bobby Jones and Quincy Pondexter are scheduled to play. However, Jones is playing in Italy and Pondexter has a NBA-sponsored commitment in Singapore. Both told Romar they’ll try and play Sunday.
Brandon Burmeister (2005-09) was added to the game, which bumps the number of players in the Alumni Game to 19.
Hall of Famers Warren Moon and Lenny Wilkens will coach each team.
The Legends Game will include Christian Welp, Eldridge Recasner, Paul Fortier, Ray Price, Phil Zevenbergen, Jason Hamilton, Donald Watts, Bryant Boston, Dion Brown and Chester Dorsey. Steve Hawes and George Irvine are the coaches.
Romar joked about playing in the game although it’s uncertain if he was kidding.
