Late one night two years ago swingman Quincy Pondexter, then a sophomore, sat in coach Lorenzo Romar's office and vented about his lack of playing time. Finally Romar told him, "Let's call Brandon." When he got former Huskies guard Brandon Roy on the speakerphone and described the setting—"It's late, it's just Quincy and me in the office"—Roy, the 2006 Pac-10 player of the year and the '07 NBA rookie of the year, burst out laughing. "He said, 'Quincy, I've been there many times. Just stick to the plan and trust in Coach Romar,'" recalls Pondexter. "I've done that, and so far it's working out."
