Countdown to tipoff

Posted by Bob Condotta at 7:06 PM

With the fervor for college basketball, specifically with the Washington men at an all-time high, we thought wed 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 doesnt 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 cant 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 weve done, or want to know more about a topic weve addressed. This will be the place for that.

And heres just a little about your tour guide. Ive 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, Ive worked at a variety of papers on the West Coast covering college basketball, primarily the Pac-10, and Ive 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.
