• We told you last night we would be back in the morning, so here we are. And that’s the only reason why. As I roam the web looking for available items to pass along regarding Cougar football, I found our story, which I posted last night, along with a lot of notes, and a Cougfan report. That’s it.

PULLMAN – Washington State University starting center DeAngelo Casto was arrested and cited for fourth degree assault just after midnight Friday morning.
“The coaches are aware of the situation and are gathering information,” said WSU assistant sports information director Jessica Schmick.
Police responded to a report of a fight on NE B St., according to Cmdr. Chris Tennant of the Pullman Police. They talked with a man who had a laceration on his head, the result, the man and witnesses told police, of a punch delivered by Casto. The injury did not require hospitalization, according to Tennant.
Casto was arrested two blocks away, taken to the police department, cited and later released.
Fourth-degree assault is a gross misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to one year in jail and a $5,000 fine.
The 6-foot-8 Casto, from Spokane’s Ferris High, averaged 10.7 points and a team-high 7 rebounds his sophomore year. His 106 career blocks are sixth all-time at WSU.
