Tony Wroten: can he lead the Huskies to Final Four?
Lorenzo Romar is desperate to lead the Washington Huskies to the Final Four and although the team has underachieved at times this season, they are still one of the most dangerous teams in the country with Tony Wroten leading the way by averaging just under 17 points a game.
He is arguably the most talented freshman in the country and is the type of player that in a NCAA tournament setting is very likely to thrive because it is very difficult for defenders to adjust to a player capable of putting so much pressure on any defense with the ball in his hands.
Commenting on why the freshman phenom is capable of leading the Washington Huskies to the Final Four, Romar recently stated, “I just know that he has that size to where he can look over the defense. Magic was 6-9 and Tony is right at 6-5. Sometimes guys see things, but they see it a second late. He sees things right as they are developing and he delivers the ball on the spot. And he can do that while going full speed. And those are things that Magic was able to do. Our guys are still learning how to adjust to catching his passes because he’s the type of passes that passes you the ball when you don’t know you’re open.”
That is certainly high praise from the excellent head coach and gives the world an idea that the maturing point guard is going to have the ball in his hands as much as possible in the coming weeks. With the chance to still win the Pac 12 title outright, to win the Pac 12 tournament, and to reach the Final Four, this is one of the most dangerous teams in the country.
The team is peaking at the right time of the season and with Tony Wroten looking more comfortable each game, this may be the year that Lorenzo Romar gets over the hump and leads the program to a coveted Final Four appearance. Be on the look out for the Dawgs during March Madness.
