Joe Wolfinger had his second exceptional game in a row leading the Huskies to a 87-84 win over California on Saturday. Joe scored 17 points in 18 minutes off the bench including four three pointers. The Huskies needed an outstanding night from the 7 footer because Jon Brockman was in foul trouble most of the night. The win assures the Huskies a winning record which should help them in their quest for a post season berth.
The key for Wolfinger's resurgence has been improved health, and conditioning. He broke his foot last season and was forced to sit out. It has taken this long for him to regain his stamina and shooting stroke. Joe is rarity because he is sort of a Ryan Appleby in a 7 foot body. His improvement in play is going to be a big bonus to the program over the next three years.
The Huskies face WSU next week before going on to the Pac Ten tournament in Los Angeles.
