Several articles in today's The Seattle Times pumping up UW prospects this year and touting Fultz (one radio guy today characterized him as a budding Kobe Bryant). Here's one of the articles. http://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw-huskies/washington-not-as-talented-but-could-be-better-basketball-team/

Mentions UW has 10/29 closed scrimmage with "St. Mary's" (assume that is SMC of WCC, but with Romar's scheduling strategy who knows). Will be interesting to hear rumors about how that went.

Hopefully there will be a Zag preview in the Times at some point this month (but with Bud retired maybe not).

At this point, Gonzaga is flying beneath the radar of the average sports fan in Seattle, which is fine with me.

But, if UW starts well out of the gate, the Seattle press will be giving huge coverage to Dec. 7 game (as if the first time NWG plays against UW wasn't enough already).

One thing: Romra says Fultz is the most talented frosh had. I wonder how that makes the other kids feels Very awkward of Romar.

Fultz is the real deal, watched him last year and he can flat out score. Of course he isn't Kobe but he will be a top 7 pick next year for a reason.

Never has so little been done with so much. Yet more talent to be wasted by the intrepid Lorenzo.

Will be a good match up with our guards -- give Melsons defense a great chance to shine.

RB was a Romar asst. (St Louis?) They have scrimmaged each other for several years, like the Zag-Texas scrimmages. Reports were that SMC hammered UW last year, +- 20 point win.

Does Seattle have a seminary or something named "St. Mary's"? High school?

Or a cemetery?
