The 7-3 Washington Huskies face the University of Montana Grizzlies at noon Sunday at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. The Huskies play Morgan State on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. and then begin Pac-10 games a week from today at Washington State.
The 7-3 record isn't bad but Romar figured the team would have been at least 8-2 at this point. The loss to Portland to open the season was a surprise. A last second loss to Florida seemed to be the turning point for the young squad after being outclassed by Kansas the previous evening.
For the Huskies to do well in the Pac Ten they are going to have to keep improving out on the perimeter. They seem to have done that every game but one facet of the game is still missing and that is three point shooting. The Huskies need to get Thomas as comfortable in games as he is in practice from that range.
Overall the Huskies are one of the best rebounding teams in college basketball led by Jon Brockman but they need to improve their overall shooting percentage to be dancing in March.
The Lehigh game probably won't be rescheduled.
Montana junior guard Ryan Staudacher is one of the nation's leading 3-point shooters and shooting 57.7 percent overall . Staudacher played at Lake Washington HS.
Anthony Johnson from Stadium HS in Tacoma is the Grizzlies leading scorer.
The Huskies lead the series 40-9, including 27-4, but have lost five of previous seven meetings.
