A few readers asked for the video shown on at Alaska Airlines Arena before Sunday’s Alumni Game. Thanks to the folks at UW, we found it on YouTube.
Also, there’s not much to report from Monday night’s games at the Northwest Collegiate Summer League.
Many of the Huskies scheduled to play were no-shows with the exception of Hikeem Stewart. The incoming junior guard paired with Seattle University’s Emerson Murray and Utah State’s Jeff Perkins for an easy 72-61 win.
Keep an eye on Murray, a 6-3 junior guard who transferred from California after two seasons with the Golden Bears. He can score inside and outside. Last night he had 18 points. Perkins, the former Rainier Beach High standout, had 16.
Stewart finished with 12 points. His outside shot was off and on. It seems as if he risks tumbling down the Washington depth chart if his perimeter game doesn’t improve or if he doesn’t spruce up his point-guard skills.
Stewart, 6-2, would do well to follow the footsteps of former UW standout Justin Dentmon, who played Monday in the most entertaining game of the night. Dentmon is also undersized at 5-11, but he has a knack for scoring. He had 21 points on a team that included SU’s Clarence Trent, the former UW Husky.
However, the duo was no match against former UW stars Isaiah Thomas (10 points) and Matthew Bryan-Amaning (17) and Anrio Adams (13), the former Kansas guard who is transferring to Ohio University.
Monday’s high scorers were SU’s Deshaun Sunderhaus (25 points) and Isiah Umipig (23).
