Washington Preview Capsule

By The Associated Press=

Washington

Last season: 19-15, lost in second round of the NIT.

Nickname: Huskies.

Coach: Lorenzo Romar.

Conference: Pac-12.

Who's gone: G Andrew Andrews, G Dejounte Murray, F Marquese Chriss, F Donaven Dorsey.

Who's back: F Matisse Thybulle. Thybulle started all 34 games as a freshman, averaging 6.2 points and 3.2 rebounds. Expected to take on more of a scoring role this season. F Noah Dickerson. Dickerson played in 33 games as a freshman, averaging 7.5 points and 5.2 rebounds. C Malik Dime. Dime set a Washington record with 88 blocks last season and became a better offensive player as the season progressed. F Dominic Green. Green has received offseason buzz as the Huskies' most improved player.

Who's new: G Markelle Fultz. Perhaps the most decorated incoming freshman to ever arrive at Washington, Fultz is being counted on to be the Huskies' offensive leader from the start. F Sam Timmins. The 6-foot-10 freshman gives Washington additional size on the inside. F Matthew Atewe. The Auburn transfer should see significant minutes off the bench.

The Skinny: The Huskies have not made the NCAA Tournament since 2011. It's a cloud hanging over Romar and only an NCAA trip will quiet the growing dissatisfaction of fans wanting a change. Fultz is an incredible talent and may be able to get the Huskies to the NCAAs in likely his only season at Washington.
