The Morning Haul

Good Morning! Game-day, lots of Husky Basketball links.

“I can’t think too much about what people are expecting of me,” he said. “At the end of the day, if I (try to) live up to their standards, then it would just throw my entire game off. So I just have to pay attention to the team and what’s best for me.”

“You can’t shut him down,” WSU freshman guard Davonte Lacy said. “Hopefully, you can slow him down and win the game. He’s one of the best players as a freshman, so as he goes, the team goes, and vice versa.”

Bone and Romar slapped hands and backs. Players in black-and-purple Washington sweat suits warmly greeted those in crimson-and-gray, WSU ones. They all swapped information on Utah, which the Cougars had played the night before, and Colorado, which the Huskies had just faced.

Next up is the three-headed guard monster that is Faisal Aden, DaVonte Lacy, and Reggie Moore. Shockingly, Aden does not lead this team in three point attemps as the freshman Lacy has shot 23 more this season. Still, Aden leads this trio in points (12.8) while the enigma that is Moore leads the team in assists (5.4). Moore is shooting less than 40% this season and hasn’t blossomed into the star that he seemed destined for during his freshman year.

Bone has mentioned that he wants Motum to play with more of an edge. Aziz N’Diaye appears to have that (defensively, anyway), so that could be an interesting matchup to watch, if those two wind up guarding each other.

Romar on Motum: “They didn’t run anything for Brock Motum last year. Brock Motum right now has emerged as a scorer as much as anyone on that team. … They have a number of weapons and I think it’s pretty spread out with Klay being gone.”

University of Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas has filed paperwork with the National Football League to enter the 2012 NFL Draft and will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility.
