Couple quick notes

Here’s a couple of quick updates on Husky summer happenings:
GREECE TRIP UPDATE: The Huskies will leave for their trip to Greece on Aug. 27 and return Sept. 6.
The exact schedule of games, however, hasn’t been set yet. “”That’s usually the last thing that happens on these trips,” said UW coach Lorenzo Romar.
But Romar said the Huskies are likely to play a few club teams, which will probably include a few American players, as well as a national team.
Romar expects stiff competition and the win-loss record won’t really be all that important, necessarily.
“We’ll be playing against grown men,” he said. “We went on a trip like this with UCLA in 1993 (when Romar was an assistant there) and the first game we played, the other team had Roy Tarpley (a well-known former NBA player of that era). It will be tough.”
WOLFINGER UPDATE: Husky center Joe Wolfinger has been out of town the last few weeks, spending some time at his home in Oregon. But he’s due to return this week to continue his rehab and begin preparing for the trip to Greece.
Romar said Wolfinger was able to play three-on-three games without a setback before his depature and will now begin playing five-on-five.
“He’s doing fine,” Romar said of Wolfinger, who missed last season with a foot injury.
Romar says the trip to Greece “will be huge” for Wolfinger as a barometer of just how much he will be able to contribute next season.
