Wolfinger to redshirt

I’ll have more on this in our paper and on our Web site later, but just a short note to report that Lorenzo Romar announced today that Joe Wolfinger will redshirt this season.
Romar said he made the decision Monday after consulting with Wolfinger, a 7-footer who weighs 240 pounds and has a nice outside touch but needs to get bigger and stronger and develop an inside game.
Romar said Wolfinger will work on his strength with the year off.
Romar said another factor is that it will be hard for Wolfinger to get regular playing time this season with the Huskies fairly loaded in the front court, especially once Mike Jensen returns from injury. Jensen is on track to return in late December, if not a little ahead of schedule.
Also, the team practiced at the Sonics facility with the women’s basketball team and volleyball team using the courts at UW. The teams rotate courts with the volleyball team getting priority right now because it is in the thick of its season.
