Allen: Blazers G Brandon Roy Almost Played In UW Scrimmage

7
Percy Allen of SeattleTimes.com reports that Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy nearly participated in an alumni scrimmage against the current University of Washington basketball team on Wednesday, but NCAA rules got in the way. ---------------------- Washington fans won't see a dream matchup pitting a team comprised of Brandon Roy, Nate Robinson and Jon Brockman against Abdul Gaddy, Terrence Ross and Aziz N'Diaye due in part to an obscure and recently enacted NCAA rule. Coach Lorenzo Romar put himself in danger of committing a secondary violation when he told the media about a basketball scrimmage against former UW players slated for Wednesday and encouraged fans to attend. Rather than risk an infraction, a school official announced, "Due to an NCAA compliance issue, tomorrow's scrimmage has been canceled." ---------------------- Roy has kept a low profile during the lockout, attending but not playing in a Seattle charity game. He has appeared in video of some Seattle-area pick-up games. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
