As of late last week, coach Lorenzo Romar remained uncertain of his starting lineup for the tonight's night exhibition game against Seattle Pacific.
In a way, that was a good thing, as this seems to be a pretty deep and versatile roster.
However, with tipoff approaching, he seems to have tentatively settled on returnees Jon Brockman, Justin Dentmon and Quincy Pondexter joined by guard Joel Smith and 7-foot center Joe Wolfinger.
Smith and Wolfinger each sat out last season with foot injuries.
Guard Ryan Appleby would have been in the lineup, but he suffered a fractured thumb that is expected to keep in out for six weeks.
Transfer guard Tim Morris also will make his UW playing debut, and making their college debuts will be the freshman class of point guard Venoy Overton and wings Darnell Gant, Justin Holiday and Matthew Bryan-Amaning.
The newcomers will join the core of last season's team, which finished 19-13 overall, 8-10 in the Pacific-10 Conference and missed the NCAA tournament after earning invitations the three previous seasons.
Tipoff is 7 p.m. at Hec Ed. Tickets remain, but there's no TV or radio.
