From Pullman -- Well, Tony Bennett and WSU each got their first No. 1 seed. Unfortunately for Washington State fans, Bennett is coaching the Virginia Cavaliers and Wichita State University is the only WSU on this year's bracket. Throw in the fact that former Cougars guard Xavier Thames will be playing in Spokane and you might as well call it March Misery on the Palouse this season.
But there's no reason not to have fun during the most memorable month in sports and one WSU fan will have her or his own One Shining Moment by winning the Spokesman-Review NCAA Tournament Challenge. I'll be hosting a bracket pool on Yahoo! and we'll be offering a juicy prize to be announced in the next few days. Yahoo! also has other prizes participants are eligible to win.
