    YES YES YES!!!

    Things are definitely looking up for the Huskies. I gotta give Romar credit.

    Josh Gerson from scout from was 950 this morning and said when the new Scout.com rankings come out, Fultz will be in the top 10, possibly top 5 nationally! Biggest recruiting win in the Romar era, by far

  • And now Daejon Davis just committed! The talent Romar is assembling is absolutely unreal. This team is about to get very special.

    I'll believe it when I see a Romar team play to its potential, rather than underperform and lose to far inferior teams. It's been many years since that has happened.

    That said, it's highly encouraging.

  • Oh man I'm pumped for the future of this program. Hopefully we can get Jaquori to re-commit.

    And is it just me, or are kids committing much earlier than before? Since when did kids start committing to schools in their sophomore and junior year of HS?

  • The Pac 12 has some crazy talent coming in, that's for sure. I don't think we have ever had the talent across the board that we will be seeing in the '15 class and '16 class. Right now you have 6 teams in the top 25, and 3 in the top ten for 2016 according to 247 lead by UCLA (3), ASU (9) and UO (10).

  • Quevyn Winters is leaving Washington. Sounds like he is just calling it quits and not transferring. Not a big blow to the program as he wasn't much of a contributor. That now leaves Andrew Andrews and Donovan Dorsey as the only returning players from last season.

  • I had high hopes for Winters. If any of the new folks decide to leave as well, Romar is done. It isn't a good sign to have your entire team quit on you.

    First off that's not true. Second, winters wasn't run off, hes still enrolled at UW. He's not on the team because of eligibility issues and that's all I'll say about it, nothing to do with Romar. Romar isn't going anywhere.

    Obvious you haven't been paying attention, but the program needed those players to leave to open up room for what has been happening. It's easy to say everyone quit and left if you don't pay attention. Doesn't make it true though.

    I remember the old Michael Cage. They don't make NBA players like him anymore. Pac-12 hoops has a bright future.

  • Exhibition game vs SPU was last night. Looks like it was a good showing as a bunch of players scored in double digits. I haven't been to a game in a while, I'll probably try to go to at least one this year.

    A week from today they play their first game against Texas in China on ESPN.

  • Wow what a win by the Huskies in China. They just beat a really good Texas team. UW was an 11 point underdog in this game. The freshman looked very good and poised. Chriss, Murray, Dickerson and Dime all looked really good.

    On top of that, we officially signed the #7 recruit in the 2016 class Markelle Fultz.

  • I don't know that I would call it a huge win. Texas didn't look very good at all. Either way, of course it is a great way to start. For all the hype, I wasn't too impressed by the wings and point guards. The bigs really surprised. This is going to be a fun, frustrating team to watch. It was really nice to see us get after it again though, it's been a while.

  • Huskies routed Mt. St Mary's last night, but I guess that was expected. Got to watch bits and parts of the game. Chriss looks like the real deal. There is no doubt he will be one of the best scorers in the Pac12 by his junior year. Right now, he looks like the best freshman on this team.

    UW plays Penn this weekend and then it is off to the Bahamas to play the Zags. I highly doubt we win that game, but if we can keep the game within 10 points against the Zags then I will be impressed.

  • Beating Gonzaga is going to be a trial.

    But the Huskies have another game for thier young stars to continue to gel... 3 games played against Gonzagas 2. If the Huskies can roll over the Quakers like the Mountaineers, a young talented team brimming with confidence and fearlessness playing with an underdog mentality could possibly upset the bigger, badder dawgs.

    I think the Huskies have two things that could be X-Factors against Gonzaga.

    1. Travel factor... That trip to China is going to make the trip to the Bahamas feel like a breeze.

    2. Expectations... I think nobody is expecting Washington to go toe to toe with Gonzaga let alone win. But for a young team, tournament basketball is going to be a healthy experience for them... Just being there and absorbing all they can and getting another chance at a big time event plus another cultural shock is going to make those young players grow up fast.

    Then theyll have a whole month of home games after that against mostly scrubs before they begin Pac12 play to really focus and polish thier craft and continue gelling.

    I think worst case scenario is if Washington continue thier upward trend and growth by the time they face UCLA on Jan 1st they could have 2 maybe 3 losses, 4 losses at the most. Thats losing to Gonzaga.

    Beat Gonzaga, by the time the Huskies faces UCLA they could be undefeated at best or at worst only have 1 or 2 losses under thier belts.

    Either way the experience of it all is just as important as the win. So win or lose... It should be a win-win scenario.

    Alas, Quakers first and foremost.

    This team has a chance to be really good. With the way UW Football has looked, I think the basketball program has a chance to steal the spotlight like they did when Romar first came on the scene. Regardless of their record this year, they will be fun to watch.

    I don't think he goes by Dejonte anymore, get it straight. That boy is out of control but when he gets going, wow! Interesting matchup against the Zags. Detail-driven basketball is typically the kind of team that gives Romar fits, especially when he's had young teams. How dirty can we make this game?

  • Big win last night against #25 UCLA in 2OT.

    I'm still not expecting much from the Dawgs this year, but it is good to see the young kids playing well.

  • Nice comeback win for the huskies against USC. I didn't realize they were playing until I flipped the channel during a commercial break on the Seahawk game. At that time, the score was 83-76 USC.

  • Crazy, crazy week for the Dawgs. Beat the #25 in doubt OT and then came back from down 22 to beat a tough USC team. Go Dawgs

  • This team gets little to no love from the local media. I listen to a good amount of sports talk radio and they rarely ever mention the husky hoops team. Hopefully by the end of the season the media will catch on a bit.

    Next up is the Coogs, I hope we beat them and beat them by a lot.

  • Another nice win against the Cougs. Next week we go and face the Arizona schools on the road, so I'm kind of expecting to lose both of those. If we come out of that trip with a split I'll be very impressed.

  • I know mock drafts don't mean a whole lotl, but nbadraf.net just updated their 2017 mock and it has 2 huskies in the top 10! If we can get Fultz and Murray to stay for the 2017-2018 season we could be a final four contender.
