Hopkins brings new culture to Washington

SEATTLE (AP) First-year Washington men's basketball coach Mike Hopkins hopes to install more than the trademark zone defense he learned during his long tenure as an assistant at Syracuse.

Hopkins, who worked at Syracuse for 22 years under Jim Boeheim, succeeds Lorenzo Romar, who was fired after 15 seasons. Despite having Markelle Fultz, the one-and-done guard who became the No. 1-overall pick in the NBA draft, the Huskies finished 9-22 and closed with a school-record 13 consecutive losses en route to an 11th-place finish in the Pac-12 last year.
