Husky men's hoops
Seattle Times staff reporter Bob Condotta will provide a running commentary on this year's run to March Madness. Do the Dawgs have the tools to play deep into the NCAA tourney? Or more important, can they win the Pac-10 Conference? We'll find out later, but until then, it's time to get jazzed about one of the most exciting teams in the country. E-mail Bob.

Countdown to tipoff
With the fervor for college basketball, specifically with the Washington men at an all-time high, we thought we’d try something new this year a season-long web log devoted to Husky hoops and all that surrounds it.
This is in addition to our usual sports coverage in the pages of The Seattle Times, a sort of bonus. We've found there can never be enough of a good thing, so let this serve as another place to whet your appetite for Husky hoops.
What we hope to do here is give you information that for whatever reason doesn’t fit in the paper, or simply explores further and in greater detail what is in the paper. We'll gather notes, quotes, analysis and opinion that can’t be found elsewhere.
What we also plan is some general discussions about college basketball as it relates to the Huskies -- maybe point you to some interesting stories and items about UW opponents, or give you updates on Husky recruits, or talk about the Pac-10.
Hopefully, you will also participate. This will be the perfect place to get answers to your questions about UW basketball. Maybe you have a comment on a story we’ve done, or want to know more about a topic we’ve addressed. This will be the place for that.
And here’s just a little about your tour guide. I’ve been following Pac-10 basketball for more than 30 years, having grown up in Richland in the 1970s when the Bombers ruled the state. As a journalist, I’ve worked at a variety of papers on the West Coast covering college basketball, primarily the Pac-10, and I’ve covered Washington off-and-on since 1994. Yes, I even remember the likes of Andy Roberson and David Hawken.
So welcome aboard our new Husky hoops blog, and remember that your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
