Washington State women get sweep

Totally remiss in my women's basketball duties … enjoying a lovely day downtown on Saturday, especially the walk through the park but the basketball game at the Arena was less satisfying. Today, don't ask but it involved a lot of honey-do's if the Super Bowl gets on the calendar. But first, a Top 25 and roundup of what happened around here. Read on.

Washington State had its first weekend sweep in quite some time and has five league wins in quite some time.

Eastern Washington came up empty at home.

Idaho didn't find paradise in Hawaii, which was winless in league play.

Katie Baker (Lake City) continues her remarkable comeback from surgery in Montana win; Portland State, with Kelli Valentine (Mead) in double figures, defeats Northern Colorado to help Montana State, with Lyndi Seidensticker (Lewis and Clark) in double figures, regain first place. UC Davis wins after Heidi Henitz (Central Valley) is honored for 1,000 career points; more than a week off isn't enough time for Angie Bjorklund (University) who is out for Tennessee's game on Monday at Kentucky.

Here's my vote. Time to go, kickoff in 5 minutes.

20. Gonzaga
21. West Virginia
