Husky Hoops: Romar Meets With the Local Media On The Eve of a New Era

New, 19 comments

Here's a quick recap of the highlights of the Huskies first meeting with the media as the season quickly approaches.

The Huskies Men's Basketball team's players and coaches met with the media for the first time this year in what should provide fans their first insight into the young new-look Huskies team.

The Seattle Times Percy Allen provided great coverage of Romar's comments as did the Tacoma News Tribune's Christian Caple. You will be able to find the tweets below, but first I figured I would summarize the most interesting takeaways:

  • First and foremost, Head coach Lorenzo Romar announced that Freshman Forward Marquese Chriss has suffered a fracture to his left wrist, and will miss three to  four weeks. Romar does believe that he will be back in time for the beginning of the season. 
  • Romar also noted that this team will be able to play at a faster tempo than they have the last few seasons, and will look to apply more pressure defensively. Also of note (though this should not come as much of a surprise to Husky fans) is that the Huskies - who boast nine players under the age of 20 - are the youngest team in the Pac-12.
  • Finally, Romar said he was excited to return to "Husky Basketball" something I know many on this site have been clamoring for for years. That alone should be enough to get fans excited, if they are not already.

Now, onto the tweets.
