In case you missed it, Times reporter Tom Wyrwich found highlights of the Northwest Panthers-Seattle Rotary game played earlier this month and posted them on his blog.

This is the same game I wrote about here.

That's some serious talent on the court, and very competitive too. Imagine if they all stayed home to play for the Dawgs. That would be a blast.

Absolutely! Best basketball state in the nation - per capita!

tony wroten is the gem of this bunch. he is the must have for the dawgs. a cousin of nate rob and son of a husky. he was born to be a husky and i'm hoping those two as well as others are reminding him of that.

i'd love to snag gaddy, bradley, and dotson, though i am cautious of signing too many 2 guards. if some can play point i wouldn't mind stacking up on versatile 6'4" guards. versatility is the key.

sounds as if josh smith is thinking ucla at this point, but that could always change. winning will be the only way to sway these top local kids. hopefully isiah can set an example for many of them and resurrect that sense of pride that brockman, roy, hawes, webster, etc. felt when they chose the huskies.

Well said 206er. You can't compare Romar's situation to Willingham's, but at the same time I really think this coming season will play a critical role in Huskies future.

If Huskies can reach the tourney and brin bck some of that swagger they had a few years ago, I suspect it will draw some of the local talent Huskies need and will propel them to continued success...potentially sweet 16 or even greater tournament finishes.

However, it is obvious Romar is really having to work hard (harder than I believe he's ever had to before) at the recruiting and if Huskies have another disappointing season I then suspect it will be that much more difficult to turn it around.

You really hate to place so much expectations on one season, but I'm convinced this season will really determine what Husky b-ball will look like in the next five years.

If anyone disagrees I'd love to hear your reasons why.

I would be really uncomfortable going to work if I was Abdul Gaddy's mom.

Thanks for that link John. It will be interesting to see if anything comes from that.

maybe no more for memphis! he and bradley will BOTH go to texas then. 206er you post on here alot but you must not read the other posts. Smith id say he have chance. Wroten id say we have a long shot at best. he has even said were not in his top 5 but we do make the top ten. kinda sucks but the only way to change that is win this and next year. He will be committed before his sr year where ever he ends up. Right now he like louisville and maryland best

Wroten likes Maryland? I'm in ACC country and maryland is perhaps the worst program in the ACC now- seriously. Gary Williams is barely hanging on.

So much depends on the success of the dawgs this year. I think Romar is a coach families like, players like and like to play for- so if he can legitimately promise some success and exposure- some will choose UW over even big time schools because of Romar's charisma.

Basically, Romar is an OG from Compton who rocks a mustache. What's not to love?

My view. UW, really, is in good shape.maybe not guarateed next year, but the basic situtation is okay. Romar's the right coach for this team. x's and o's he solid. There were identifiable reasons for the lull the last two years (It would've only last one year if Hawes never came), and let's hope he's got it worked out.

According to NCAA rule 13.01.1, the communication between Bronczek and Oseye Gaddy could also result in Abdul Gaddy becoming ineligible to play for Memphis:

That is funny stuff. I guess they felt that they couldn't win out on Gaddy even though they have Josh Pastner now....pretty funny.

If any of you are as pathetic as me and are curious to follow how MBA is doing, he's playing right now.

I don't know...4 TO's in one half? C'mon MBA.

Great Britain is winning big (51-29), MBA has 3 traveling violations and 4 total turnovers, which sounds really similar to last year, where he kept moving his pivot foot when he went to make a move in the post.

Let's hope Romar is working with him on that, seems like an easy thing to grow out of...

PS: The FedEx story is priceless, I can only wonder how this is spreading at the water-coolers at that company. Everyone loves to make fun of the CEO...
