NWSB Insider and UW hoops writer Clinton Bell brings us the question of “is coach Romar on the hot seat?” Honestly this all depends on how sympathetic the AD wants to be, as Romar has had to go through the motions this year without two of his best scorers from last year in Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten. He still has CJ Wilcox, but the team cannot rely on one players back to carry the rest of this team. Clinton thinks that Romar’s day’s are limited, and if he doesn’t get shown the door after this season, he will be very soon.
NWSB Insider and UW hoops writer Clinton Bell tells us his over and under achiever for the 2012/2013 University of Washington Huskies men’s basketball team. The easy, and even obvious choice for over achiever is CJ Wilcox.

NWSB Insider and UW Huskies basketball writer Clinton Bell tells us there are three returning freshman guards for next season, Andrew Andrews, Hikeem Stewert, and Alex Wegner, and yes, they were all under the recruiting eye of coach Romar. Why do we care you ask? Because Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten have both declared for the 2012 NBA draft and will go pro. Too early in Clinton’s opinion.
