I am exhausted after last night. Here are some links to help you and me wake-up!
Washington hit 17-of-20, 85 percent, of its free throws to pace itself to a 95-80 win over a game Oregon State.
He said that several schools have expressed interest thus far. His early list includes Florida, UNLV, Gonzaga, Washington, Xavier and New Mexico State. Birch is close with fellow Canadian Kevin Pangos at Gonzaga and also developed a friendship with big man Sim Bhullar – who is at New Mexico State.
“They got to the basket whenever they wanted to, and they are probably the first team to do that to us on a consistent basis,” Robinson said. “To our guys, (on) defense, we got off to our first bad start, and then I thought that we played them pretty evenly the whole game. We had every reason to close shop and move on, but these guys have no quit in them, and I was happy about that.”
Romar On Wroten “As you get older — and it’s not like he’s 22 all of a sudden — but he’s had 11 games under his belt and the really talented ones, they learn to figure it out,” coach Lorenzo Romar said. “This was a different kind of game. This was more wide open.
“He really showed that he’s made substantial improvement in terms of impacting winning.”
The Beavers, Robinson has said, are in uncharted waters this season, with a newfound expectation of winning games. The waters got a little rough up around Lake Washington, but they came out all right, the coach said.
“We were out in the deep end,’’ Robinson said. “It showed for the first five or six minutes. After that, I liked the way our guys handled it.’’
NOTE:Video Highlights of the Alamo Bowl are included in this piece.
Washington quarterback Keith Price outplayed his Heisman counterpart, going 23 for 27 with 438 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for another three scores.
Player of the game: Keith Price, QB, Washington. Baylor’s safety play was poor, but you still have to make the throws. Price made all of them, and then some. And then ran some more. He accounted for seven touchdowns, and didn’t have a turnover. He threw for 438 yards and ran for 39 more. Did we just see the beginning stages of a 2012 Heisman campaign? Don’t rule it out. A huge game for the impressive first-year starter. Not a bad replacement for Jake Locker, eh?
