Romar divided the alumni into two squads; 'pre-2009' and 'after-2009'. Here are the rosters.
"We just tried to find a way to make it competitive," Romar said Monday, when a total of 79 former Huskies had RSVP'd to attend the alumni game, the legends game that precedes it, the 3-point shooting and dunk contests, a fan auction, plus a private dinner after all the basketball.
"It was going to be competitive anyway," Romar said. "The older guys are always teasing the more-recent ones - `How come you didn't do this? How come you haven't done that?' They have a lot of pride.
"And the younger guys, they usually fire right back at them."

Let the Woofin' Begin: Romar Sets Alumni Game Teams
The day will tip-off at 1 p.m. with a Legends Game which pairs two teams of UW standouts from years past. More-recent Huskies will then take stage for the Alumni Game, showcasing Huskies currently playing professionally. Fans will then be treated to a 3-point shootout, and a slam-dunk contest, likely to feature NBA Slam-Dunk Champions Nate Robinson and Terrence Ross.
"We have such a strong and connected network of former players here at Washington, and they love getting the chance to catch up with each other," Romar said. "This event is about providing an opportunity for them to do so, and for Washington Basketball fans to get the chance to see some of their all-time favorites don the purple and gold once again."
The event will be presented and produced by 3 Point Productions, a Seattle-based live events and sports entertainment company who works closely with the University of Washington to enhance the game presentation and fan experience at Husky home games.
"This is a one-of-a-kind event, and we're thrilled to be presenting it," Pat Walker, President of 3 Point Productions, said. "For the first time ever, Washington is holding a public game featuring the alumni players and the entertainment value of combining Husky tradition with this all star cast of athletes is going to make for a memorable day on campus."
