Everyone’s back – almost

Took a few minutes away from football duties today to watch the basketball team work out.
Almost everyone is back in town and working — the only ones missing Tuesday were Artem Wallace, who is still out of town, and Hans Gasser, who I think is still recovering from a separated shoulder suffered earlier this summer.
Everyone else was there and playing, along with one guest — Stanford guard Mitch Johnson, a good friend of several of the players and apparently still out on summer break.
Didn’t have as much time to watch this time as before, but long enough to make a few observations:
Harvey Perry appeared to be going just fine. Word is he has really improved on his outside shot and I saw him nail one three-pointer.
I continue to be impressed with Adrian Oliver, who always seems to be in the middle of everything.
Ryan Appleby has been spending a lot of time this offseason working on driving to the basket and other inside moves and he seems much more aggressive working inside. But he also hit a couple of his trademark treys.
The more I watch Joe Wolfinger, the more I think he’s really going to help this year. He definitely takes up space inside — he’s obviously bigger than he was a year ago — and seems much more assertive inside.
I completely forgot to mention Brandon Burmeister last time for no reason other than being negligent. He was definitely out there this time — he hit at least one trey during the time I was watching.
Zach Johnson also wasn’t there and as I’ve written here before, I don’t expect him back as a player, though nothing is official. What happens with his scholarship and all I don’t know yet.
