Tuesday morning notes

First, here’s my story on last night’s game, which includes a lot on Rod Diederichs (remember that SPU is a local team for our newspaper, as well).
Diederichs came out briefly near the end of the game with cramps, he said, so he was fine. He went down with about five minutes to go chasing a ball and was out for a few minutes, during which time UW began to pull away a bit.
Many of you have mentioned Joe Wolfinger, who played just 12 minutes overall and only one in the second half — he started the half, then came out a minute in and never played again.
UW coach Lorenzo Romar said later that “it was a tough game for Wolf” the way SPU did a lot of backdoor cuts and all of that. “It was not a tailor-made game for Wolf.”
Artem Wallace took Wolfinger’s minutes in the second half and played pretty well, witih six points and three rebounds in seven minutes. Wallace was the only Husky who didn’t play in the first half, but that was strictly coach’s decision, for anyone wondering.
As mentioned last night, Romar was disappointed in the 22 turnovers.
“We’d like to push the ball up,” he said. “But we need to make better decisions.”
And I think we definitely saw how valuable Ryan Appleby will be to this team as UW was just 4-11 on three-pointers.
“Ryan does so much to a defense, stretching it out,” said Jon Brockman. “They have to respect the guy. He’ll hit a three all the way from halfcourt. We don’t have him for six weeks so we’ve got to suck it up and someone has to step up.”
A COUPLE OTHER NOTES:
— Letter-of-intent day is next Wednesday, and CSTV recently examined the classes Pac-10 teams are expected to sign. Nothing really new here, but a good overview.
— That story mentioned DeAngelo Casto, and as we reported today, he has moved back to play this year at Ferris High in Spokane.
C.J. Giles is apparently back in good standing at Oregon State, having returned to practice. He won’t be eligible until Dec. 8.
