Prior to the Huskies' second-round game against New Mexico, I sent some of the players Facebook messages. They were just words of encouragement; just letting them know if they win their next game, then the "real" fun begins. I say that because making the NCAA tournament is always a great achievement, rewarding a team that has worked hard all season.

Ideally, Lorenzo Romar would love to be in the green room at Draft Central - Madison Square Garden in New York City. That's where all the 2006 NBA Draft hubub is taking place.

Bobby Jones has always been familiar with Bobby Jones. The other Bobby Jones. You know, the former Denver Nugget and Philadelphia 76'er that was all-league around the same time as the greats - like Bill Walton and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Former Washington forward Bobby Jones was taken No. 37 in the second round of the NBA Basketball Draft Wednesday night in New York City by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jones' selection follows that of former hoop dawg Brandon Roy, who went No 6. to Minnesota, but was later traded to Portland.
According to Scout.com Draft Analyst Frank Burlison, Brandon Roy is the No. 1 NBA Draft prospect for the class of 2006. But does Frank think the former Washington great will be the No. 1 player drafted? The best overall player just might not be the best fit for the Toronto Raptors when it's all said and done.

He tries to stay away from the newspapers, going online, or watching the draft shows on telelvision. Bobby Jones has his hopes up high enough already without the rumor mill bringing them crashing to a halt like an Otis George screen. For the recently graduated Husky, life is now about going back to square one.
