Coach Lorenzo Romar said the season-opening three-day camp in Lacey over the weekend went well. That mostly means that everyone came out healthy and seemed to meet expectations.
Among those who reported with preexisting injuries, Artem Wallace is expected to be full-go by the end of this week, and Darnell Gant might be ready next week.
The team was able to work for four hours per day, and Romar said they used it all, either on the court or learning sessions. By the end, "you could see that gas tanks were getting a little low," Romar said.
The team stayed at a hotel near the St. Martin's campus, and that allowed the coaches to let the new players know what is expected of them on road trips this season.
Never miss a local story.
The team also had some time for a little social bonding ... including a little bowling ... apparently with Artem Wallace doing the best.
But overall, Romar said the team seems further along than at this time last season, thanks largely to an increase in guys Romar considers play-makers.
