QB Jeff Lindquist, Mercer Island (Wash.) — Despite starting the game on the bench, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound passer emerged as the most effective quarterback after tossing two touchdown passes in leading the West to a 17-14 win. He’ll head to Washington next fall, where he’ll play understudy to dual-threat signal-caller Keith Price.
“(Lorenzo) Romar is a great dude. It’s a really sound program and very family oriented,” he said. “I know Arizona would develop my game a whole lot.”
Washington freshman Tony Wroten, the Pac-12’s Player of the Week, averaged 21.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists in last week’s wins over Oregon State and Oregon. During the Oregon broadcast, ESPN analyst Sean Farnham predicted Wroten would be this season’s Pac-12’s Player of the Year.
5. Tony Wroten, Washington Huskies
I love his penetration skills as he is fearless taking the rock to the basket. Wroten has put up several huge games for Lorenzo Romar and the Huskies are 2-0 in Pac-12 play already.
“I don’t know if we can match them point for point,” he said Tuesday during the Pac-12 teleconference. “I think they’re explosive offensively and they have so many different weapons. Our will is going to have to be very strong. Our resolve is going to have to be very strong on Thursday night.”
The Buffs (9-4, 1-0) enter tonight’s game with the Pac-12’s longest winning streak of four games. CU is 7-1 at home this season and 25-3 (.893) at the Coors Events Center under Boyle.
“I feel like we’ve gained a lot of confidence. We’re finally starting to click as a team, offensively and defensively,” said Roberson, who had 17 points and a career-high 17 rebounds against Utah. “I feel like if we just do what coach asks of us we’ll be all right.”
