Roster changes for WSU basketball


Some news we’ve had before on the Washington State basketball roster is going to be made official today, with one surprise. For that information, read on.


• We’ve gone over the situation with Fabian Boeke before, in that his back injury just won’t heal and that he’s applied for a medical hardship. That would allow him to stay in school on scholarship, and then that scholarship wouldn’t count against WSU’s official number of 13. The news today is Boeke has been granted his medical dispensation and is no longer a member of the team. … We’ve also mentioned the scholarship would be going to Charlie Enquist, the 6-foot-10 redshirt junior who has been an important practice player for the past two years. … The other surprising announcement today is that guard Nick Witherill has been granted his release. Witherill was the first member of last year’s freshman class to commit to WSU, almost three years ago. During the waning days of Tony Bennett’s tenure in Pullman, the Cougar coach made it clear he was going to ask Witherill to look elsewhere. Then Bennett left and Witherill had a fresh start with a new staff. But the 6-2 left-handed shooting guard, who played in just six games last season, scoring two points, must have seen the writing on the wall as it pertains to playing time and decided it was better to transfer. … As for Witherill’s scholarship, Bone said in a news release he has no plans to fill it. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be before next season.


• That’s it for now. As always, we’ll be back as events warrant the rest of the week. Until then …
