Romar also said there will be no change in the starting lineup Thursday, meaning sophomore center Artem Wallace will continue to start ahead of 7-foot freshman Spencer Hawes.

Hawes admitted that coming off the bench bothers him "a little bit." But he said he hasn’t approached Romar about it, and called it "not that big of a deal."

He also praised Wallace’s contributions.

"He’s been playing well," Hawes said. "What he brings is a little different than what I bring. It’s kind of a good contrast in what we can do. If we can both keep contributing it’s only going to help the team out."

On the season, Hawes is averaging a team-high 15.1 points and has a team-high 33 blocked shots.

Wallace is averaging 1.8 points and 2.2 rebounds, but Romar has praised his energy and toughness.

"Of course, I like starting," Wallace said. "It feels good to be able to help the team out and play a roll and just do whatever it takes. I’m just happy to get some playing time."
