Notes, quotes and thoughts following the Western game

Washington wanted a test in its exhibition and Div. II defending national champion Western Washington provided it.

The Vikings were scrappy and tricky to guard during Washington’s 88-78 win. I said to Washington head coach Lorenzo Romar afterward that Western was like South Dakota State Light, and he said that’s what he told the team beforehand.
