Wolfinger back in action

Posted by Bob Condotta

Had a chance yesterday to watch the UW basketball team for a few minutes in between football duties, and noticed that Joe Wolfinger was back on the floor. He had been sitting out, resting his foot. I'll try to get more of a peek at the hoops team again sometime this week. Many of the players are working this week with the Lorenzo Romar basketball camps on-campus.

right, just like you were going to give us a update on Justin Holiday.... who I think is going to be a big surprise to you this year.. If the dawgs are committing to playing defense..

Wolfinger, getting ready to start his last season for the Huskies before he graduates (remember, out two seasons with redshirt and medical, played one, and this is number 4) and makes room for the four freshman Mr. Condotta keeps indicating Coach Romar will bring in next season.

Good point Josh. If Wolf graduates in 4 years and continues to struggle on the court, he will be gone just like Smith to make room for incoming freshmen (barring someone else leaving early for whatever reason). However, if he makes a huge impact, would that earn him an extra year? That could be a tough call for Romar to make. If it is between Wolf and either Gaddy/Bradley/Dotson, then Wolf is gone.

Robertroll --- What I said was, next time I had a chance to really watch a workout I would pay closer attention to Holiday and pass it along. Otherwise, there isn't really much to update this time of year about guys who aren't hurt, new, etc. From all reports, he's been working out hard, making some progress on his game, and has been particularly effective defensively. Do you have a specific question about Holiday you would like answered?

WOLF is way to slow to play for Romar

Wolfinger is a joke. Why he is playing d1 bball is beyond me. Another example of why romar needs to be fired BEFORE lierone.

Thanks Bob, that answers it,, just think this kid has big time potential, and would help this team get more defensive and open up the court more with all the athleticism we have now.

Why the hate for Wolf? He has game and can be an asset off the bench. He doesn't have Spencer Hawes talent but when he has the 3 ball working no one can block it. Plus he can force the other team's center to play away from the basket, which isn't a bad thing when you're playing 6'8" guys on the post like Brockman and MBA.

Your criticism of Wolf is understandable, but you are way off target in your criticism of Romar. Husky Basketball blogs wouldn't exist without Romar.
