A few items to pass along on a day when I really should be outside (though with the wonders of wireless internet, if you don't tell the boss, maybe I am):
--- First, word is that Artem Wallace is walking around pretty good these days, helping to officiate games this week during the Lorenzo Romar basketball camps for kids in grades 4-8 over at Bellevue Community College. He appears to be on track for a return in November, which would give him some time to get reacclimated to live action before Pac-10 games begin in January.
--- Speaking of Pac-10 play, the Huskies will indeed open the season in Pullman against WSU on Jan. 3. The Huskies will conclude conference play against the Cougars in Seattle on March 7. The full schedule should be released in a week or so once the Huskies finalize one more non-conference game. But I can report that the Huskies will have a favorable Pac-10 schedule early with four of the first seven conference games at home --- Cal and Stanford will visit on the weekend of Jan. 8-10; the Huskies will then go to Oregon and Oregon State Jan. 15-17, then return home to host USC and UCLA the weekend of Jan. 22-24. The Huskies will then have four straight on the road, a stretch that figures to loom critical, going to Arizona and Arizona State the weekend of Jan. 29-31, then to Cal and Stanford Feb. 5-7. Then UW will finish with five of seven at home --- visits from the Oregon schools Feb. 12-14, a trip UCLA and USC Feb. 19-21, home to Arizona State and Arizona the weekend of Feb. 26-28, and then the finale at home against the Cougars.
--- Center Matthew Bryan-Amaning was officially named to the British Basketball Federation U-20 team earlier this month. The team will play in the European Championships in Romania in August. UW coaches encourage players to take part in any international tournaments as they can be valuable experience for young players. The tournament will end in plenty of time for Bryan-Amaning to get back to Seattle and prepare for the beginning of practice on Oct. 15. Here's an earlier post with more details and links.
All for now.
