Two nights in a row I've watched local teams face tough circumstances on the road. Both nights they came through with big wins over ranked teams.
Wednesday night it was Gonzaga at Stanford. Thursday night it was WSU at Arizona. The Cougars dug out the Pac-10 win with strong defense, offensive execution and ball control.
Almost football like. And the game had that type of tone. A tough, battle in the trenches, see who survives game.
It was the Cougars.
