Ryan Appleby “will be available” against Pitt

That’s the official word from UW coach Lorenzo Romar from before practice today as the Huskies prepare to take on Pitt tomorrow at noon.
The Panthers practiced at Hec Ed this morning and then the Huskies took over the floor.
And the coach said UW guard Ryan Appleby should be ready to make his first appearance of the season as long as he doesn’t suffer any setback in practice today in his recovery from a broken thumb suffered Oct. 31.
Appleby has experienced soreness in the thumb in practices the last two weeks, particularly when it gets banged on — he hurt his right (or shooting) thumb. But otherwise, the recovery has gone to form.
The starting lineup is expected to be the same, with Justin Dentmon and Venoy Overton at guards, and Matthew Bryan-Amaning, Jon Brockman and Quincy Pondexter up front.
Pitt is healthy and will go with its regular starting unit which has the team off to an 8-0 start and a No. 9 national ranking.
Pitt is led by 6-6 forward Sam Young, who is averaging 18.6 points per game and thriving in an expanded role this season with Aaron Gray and two other starters from a year ago gone. Young averaged just 7.2 points per game last season.
ALSO:
To answer two questions raised on the other post:
Joe Wolfinger redshirted his first season then sat out last year with an injury, so he is officially a redshirt sophomore. He could apply for a sixth year at some point, ala Juan Garcia in football, but that hasn’t happened yet and not sure if it will.
Jrue Holiday signed an official LOI with UCLA so no real turning back on that one.
