SEATTLE (AP) -The Washington Huskies are too sick to fully begin practicing for the season.
Coach Lorenzo Romar said Tuesday seven of his 12 players, including senior leader Quincy Pondexter, have had the flu since Saturday's first full practice day of the preseason.
The Huskies had only seven players for drills Monday. Each day coaches show up and find someone else sick.
Romar says it's the worst illness he's had on a team since he began coaching in 1992 as a UCLA assistant.
Sophomore forward Darnell Gant has been the sickest. Others who have been on the side watching practice: Matthew Bryan-Amaning, Venoy Overton, Scott Suggs, Clarence Trent and Tyreese Breshers.
Romar says none have been diagnosed with swine flu.
