Lorenzo Romar was asked this afternoon about the Huskies’ Pacific-10 Conference opener Saturday at Washington State.
"At this point, I’d like to reserve talking about that until after this Morgan State game," he said. "We’ve got one more before we play Washington State."
"Morgan State is a good team," he continued. "They won 22 games last year and went to the postseason; so, they’re a good team. They go on the road and they beat DePaul. They go on the road and played Ole Miss very tough and could have won the game. They’ve only been really blown out one game. With a tough schedule, they’ve been in just about every game."
So, if Romar wants us concentrating on the Morgan State game, here’s some quick info on the Morgan State game.

One of the wins came at DePaul, 79-73. … The Bears average 62.3 points per game (274th out of 330 schools) and allow 65.5 points (132nd). … Morgan State is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The school is located in Baltimore. … A couple of ongoing UW issues remain unresolved. There is still no word on whether the Lehigh game will be rescheduled, and still no decision on if true freshman Tyreese Breshers will play or redshirt. … The UW women will play No. 22 Kansas State at 5 p.m., before the men’s game. One ticket is good for both.
Next: 3 p.m. Saturday, at Washington State, Friel Court, Pullman.
