Probable starting lineup set

The Huskies have announced a probable starting lineup for tomorrow night’s exhibition game against Seattle Pacific. Here it is:
F — Quincy Pondexter
F — Jon Brockman
C — Joe Wolfinger
G — Joel Smith
G — Justin Dentmon
One thing I would say is don’t read a ton into it. Lorenzo Romar told us at media day that the lineup would indicate players who are playing well. But he also anticipates that there could be a lot of changing of the lineup as the year progresses. So this is far from rock solid going forward.
Probably the biggest news in this is the progress Wolfinger has made since last season to now be a starter in the first outing of the year, exhibition or otherwise. Given that even Wolfinger admits he had a few thoughts that he might not be able to play again this has to feel good for him to get a starting role. He is still limited to about 90 minutes of practice a day, something that figures to last into Janurary or February. But he obviously is showing a lot in practice.
It was interesting on Thursday when Romar announced the news on Ryan Appleby and was asked who the best three-point shooters would be in his absence and he mentioned Wolfinger and Adrian Oliver. Wolfinger figures to present a lot of matchup problems if he can hit that shot consistently in games this season.
Romar said Appleby would have been a starter if not injured, so figure he would have been where Smith is. Dentmon is getting the nod at PG, but Romar said that is a close battle with Venoy Overton, who will obviously play a lot as well.
