Justin Holiday is a senior and a UW co-captain. But he picked up an uncharacteristic technical foul midway through the first half today, immediately after nailing a 3-pointer from in front of the UCLA bench.

“I was talking, that’s all I can say,” Holiday explained. “I will admit I was talking. I wanted to get the win. It was selfish on my part. But we still won, thank God.”
If the technical foul call was surprising, Holiday said coach Lorenzo Romar’s displeasure was not.

“I knew,” he said. “If you seen when they blew the whistle, if you could see me I was like, ‘Here comes Romar.’ I already knew.”

The 74-63 win had special meaning to Holiday, who is a Los Angeles native. And like everyone else on the UW roster, he had never won at UCLA.

“I’m speechless right now,” he said. “I’m just glad we did it as a team. It’s the way we did it that I’m most happy about. We’re going in the right direction.”
