10:27 a.m. - Good morning from Anaheim!
Washington is scheduled to head to the Honda Center at 11:00 am today to meet with the media before conducting its last practice before taking on Georgetown. Coach Lorenzo Romar is the only member of the team not here yet, as he was out recruiting last night and caught a morning flight.
Although the coaching staff is not entirely here, those that are present are still busy pouring over film and constantly discussing how to beat Georgetown. It is safe to say that the Hoyas will present the greatest challenge to date. They are disciplined, well-coached, talented and athletic -- a combination that will cause many opposing coaching staff restless nights.
Since arriving in California, the team has ate twice - an excellent buffett dinner of fried chicken, corn on the cob, salad, mashed potatoes and baked macaroni last night - followed by a full-buffett breakfast that had everything imaginable to eat. Darnell Gant is pictured above with his custom-made omelette. The guys are probably looking forward to getting on the court this morning to run off everything have eaten in the last 12 hours!
After practice, the team will return to the hotel to eat lunch (again!) and then hit the books for study tables. While the players are studying, coach Romar and the coaches for UCLA, Mississippi State and Georgetown will meet with the media and legend John Wooden.
