Quoting Lorenzo Romar after UW’s loss at Utah

FROM SALT LAKE CITY — Before we get into Lorenzo Romar’s postgame diagnosis of Washington’s 78-69 loss to Utah here on Thursday night, we have a couple of injury notes to pass along.

Romar said neither ailment is all that serious, but Andrew Andrews (ankle) and Nigel Williams-Goss (hip) missed practice the last two days while dealing with their respective injuries.

Both played on Thursday. Williams-Goss (19 points, 8-for-17 shooting in 35 minutes) fared better than Andrews (two points, 1-for-12 shooting with six assists in 35 minutes).

Romar said Williams-Goss was “heavily padded” to protect his hip, but obviously not so much that it was noticeable.

Romar said Cobbs is “playing with a lot of confidence,” and that Solomon has become “one of their go-to guys. The toughness he’s playing with right now has been really good.” Read more »
