UW coach Lorenzo Romar was just on the Pac-10 coaches conference call and said that if the Huskies were playing a game today Jon Brockman would definitely be out. Brockman is ailing with a sprained ankle suffered Saturday at Washington State. UW plays Cal in the first round of the Pac-10 Tournament in Los Angeles Wednesday at 6 p.m.
Asked if Brockman had gotten much better over night, Romar said that there has "not been great progress. He can walk a little bit without the crutches, but if we were playing today he definitely could not play.''
No word yet on who would start in his place, and I'm not sure there will be any until shortly before the game as they wait to see Brockman's status.
IN OTHER PAC-10 NEWS
--- In response to reports that he has been contacted by LSU about its head coaching vacancy, USC's Tim Floyd said "this is my last job.'' Told that that didn't necessarily dispute that he'd been contacted, Floyd said "I just answered the question. This is my last job, at SC, okay?'' Okay.
--- Cal coach Ben Braun said center DeVon Hardin, who sat out the UCLA game with a hip injury, will "definitely play'' and that he's been able to practice the last two days.

I don't think Floyd is considering leaving - but did you notice the loophole? Last can mean terminal; last can mean previous. English is such a useful language. (One of my favorite piano favorites is Floyd Cramer's "Last Date" - a double entendre?)

Are you sure the Sonics game will block out the Husky game on FSN? The game is listed as on FSN at 6pm.

In Seattle and the state of Washington it will as the Sonics take precedence. If you are out of the area, there won't be a conflict.

I predicted a win over UCLA, and I'm predicting that UW is going to do fine without Brockman tomorrow (no way he is back before Friday after such a bad sprain). I think the guys depend on him too much, and don't take the game into their own hands if they know he could be coming off the bench at any moment.
I'd love to see Pondexter start slashing through the lanes, using his phsyical ability to dish to Appleby on the outside or elevate above everyone else for easy buckets. Also, watch for Wallace to step up and grab the tough rebounds and dive on the floor for every loose ball for his boy Brockman.
