Huskies retreat to Olympia

Posted by Bob Condotta at 11:05 AM

The Huskies begin practice Friday with a three-day retreat at The Evergreen State College in Olympia. Those practices are closed, however, so we won't have any reports on them. They're in seclusion for bonding and to pull together before their public debut. But watch for stories and notes on practice beginning next week here and in the Times' Sports section.

For now, here are links to stories on two of Washington's chief rivals that I found interesting this morning -- previews of Oregon and Oregon State from the Eugene Register-Guard. Included are schedules and rosters for those two teams.

There are two new names on OSU's roster this season who were once linked to UW - forward Jack McGillis and guard Wesley Washington. McGillis is the player who had decided to walk on at Washington last spring with the hope of getting a scholarship before he was then lured to Oregon State with the promise of an immediate scholarship. He signed with OSU in late May.

Wesley Washington, from Mater Dei High in Santa Ana, Calif., was reported to have committed to UW in the fall of 2003 before that fell through and he ended up at Oregon State.
