More on starting lineup

I posted here earlier the starting lineup as announced by UW coach Lorenzo Romar for Friday’s exhibition game against Saint Martin’s — Jon Brockman, Artem Wallace, Quincy Pondexter, Ryan Appleby and Justin Dentmon.
Romar later elaborated on why he picked those five during comments here today at the Pac-10’s annual men’s basketball media day.
“Those are the five we felt would play the best together at this point,” Romar said.
Obviously, Wallace is starting because Spencer Hawes is injured. Hawes won’t play tonight, though Romar said he’s healthy enough he could have played if it had been a regular-season game.
But Romar also said Wallace has earned the spot by grabbing more rebounds during practices so far than any other Husky.
Appleby, meanwhile, has shown a more varied offensive game along with his three-point shooting, and Romar says that has put him ahead of the other guards.
