The Dribble: Practice? Washington is talking about practice and some other notes

HuskiesLogoDay 1 of Washington coach Mike Neighbors new plan to get the Huskies playing better started Tuesday. A first-year head coach at the college level, Neighbors is testing one of his favorite quotes by Albert Einstein, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

So, now UW practices one day a week. Sounds insane. But as Neighbors explained, the team was getting about one practice in anyway, only it wasn’t everybody at the same time due to multiple injuries. On Tuesday players go through individual workouts, on Wednesdays, everyone who can play in the weekend’s games will participate in a traditional practice and Thursdays will be more focused on Friday’s opponent. Off-days are Mondays.

“We can’t improve because we can’t practice,” Neighbors said Tuesday. “It wasn’t ever going to get better the way we were doing it.”

Washington (8-7, 1-3 Pac-12)  is on a three-game losing streak, creating a must-win scenario against Utah on Friday at Alaska Airlines Arena. UW faces its third ranked team of the season in No. 21 Colorado on Sunday. Washington lost to then-No. 23 Texas A&M (74-68) in December and then-No. 24 Arizona State (78-60) earlier this month.
