Report: Lorenzo Romar Won't Commit To Abdul Gaddy As Starting PG

Earlier we noted a DraftExpress scouting report of University of Washington point guard Abdul Gaddy that was quite harsh in its assessment. According to a report from Percy Allen of the Seattle Times, DraftExpress's Jonathan Givony wasn't the only person who wanted to see more from Gaddy in his freshman season. Indeed, University of Washington head coach Lorenzo Romar says in an interview with Allen that Gaddy hasn't secured the starting point guard job yet.

The Washington coach identified three starters (co-captains Justin Holiday and Isaiah Thomas and senior Matthew Bryan-Amaning) and said sophomore point guard Abdul Gaddy hasn't secured a spot with the first unit.

Gaddy started 29 of 36 games last season and appears as if he'll need to compete with senior Venoy Overton, an all-Pac-10 Defensive team pick, for the job. Overton had been a starter when the 2009-10 season began, however, he seemed to thrive when he went to the bench after eight starts.

Asked directly about the starting point guard position, Romar told Allen, "It's a new year. It's a new year and we got guys that are going to compete for it."
