COACH AND PROGRAM

Lorenzo Romar's smile represented the Washington Huskies basketball nation last summer as Nate Robinson announced he was not entering the NBA draft and will remain in school.

Romar had reason to smile. With Robinson back, Washington returns 12 players, including all five starters from last year's NCAA Tournament team.

"We are ecstatic that Nate came back," Romar said. "Now for the first year we will have a full complement of veterans, and Nate is a big part of that. I think now that Nate is a big part of this he is really excited to achieve as a team."
