PARK RIDGE, N.J. — The Warriors arrived this morning and promptly went to their rooms for a nap. They had taken a non-stop flight from Honolulu to Newark, N.J., then the 30-minute bus ride to some place called Park Ridge.
The Warriors will have a walk-through this afternoon in either a ballroom or on the hotel grounds. Then it’s an evening of meetings and more meetings. There will be a full practice tomorrow.

Interesting roster moves. Justin Clapp, Jordan Monaco, and Parker Paredes all made the travel squad because of their play on special teams. Give credit to Clapp, son of UH associate AD Carl Clapp. It can be difficult being the son of a high-profile administrator. But Justin Clapp works hard, and never complains. He earned the roster spot. And give credit to Carl Clapp for not being intrusive. He stays away from practices. They made the best of a sensitive situation.
