Lots of new faces for Romar as Huskies get started

TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer

SEATTLE (AP) — The re-examination for Lorenzo Romar actually started after the 2012 season when Washington won the Pac-12 Conference regular season only to be left out of the NCAA tournament.

But the reevaluation for Romar never stopped with the Huskies going 18-16 last season, missing the NCAA tournament again after being beset by injuries, a lack of depth and players failing to meet expectations.

So as the Huskies begin the 2013-14 season, change is abound, from new additions to the coaching staff to a roster that including six new faces that were not able to play for the program a season ago.

The Huskies begin practice in earnest early next week. Washington beings the season with an exhibition against Central Washington on Nov. 6 and starts the regular season Nov. 10 against Seattle.
