Daugherty is buying what Bennett was selling


The newest Cougar basketball coach is moving into a house with a history. A short history, but one with roots.

New women’s basketball coach June Daugherty is buying Dick Bennett’s house in Pullman. A solid house, with a deep Midwestern foundation, we presume.

Now Cougar fans are hoping she can bring the same values, and the same success in building a program, that Bennett brought to the men’s team.


• Robb Akey wants just one thing in tonight’s Silver and Gold Game, ending spring football at the University of Idaho. He wants balance. The first-year head coach wants a balance between the offense, which dominated one scrimmage, and the defense, which did the same in the other.

Jim Meehan shares Akey’s thoughts in the story linked above and on his blog.

• The Vandal women moved into the Western Athletic Conference tennis semifinals, while WSU golfer Amy Eneroth was a second-team All-Pac-10 pick. Both are covered in this roundup.
