Coach Lorenzo Romar’s plan for Washington never truly came together this season and with two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Huskies are tied for seventh in the Pac-12.

Romar has six seasons remaining on a 10-year contract extension that expires after the 2019-20 season. He also has the full support of Washington athletic director Scott Woodward.

“As far as I’m concerned, Lorenzo Romar is a perfect fit for Washington,” Woodward said last month.

This season has been marked with an amazing milestone – Romar moved into second place on UW’s all-time coaching wins list.

And it’s also been filled with several disappointments. Barring a miraculous finish, UW will miss the NCAA tournament for a third straight year.

To underscore the mounting defeats, fan apathy is up and attendance is down — by 19 percent at 10,000-seat Alaska Airlines Arena, where the Huskies are averaging 6,439 fans.

There’s plenty of reasons to explain Washington’s troubles ranging from recruiting mistakes, early defections, transfers and injures.

What’s your take on the Huskies?
