Pregame from McKale Center 

COUGARS FROM TUCSON -- We've made it to press row at McKale Center, where Arizona and Washington State will try to stay awake long enough to play each other tonight (the game doesn't start until 8:30 p.m. Mountain Time). We have some pregame thoughts, so...

Some notes and a Stanford scouting report 

COUGARS FROM PULLMAN -- No matter your age, there always seems to be a little more excitement in the air when school gets canceled. That's what it feels like here, as WSU has canceled Thursday's classes due to inclement weather. We're still working, though, and...

A nameless first post 

???? This feature wasn't supposed to start until Tuesday. Really haven't figured out a name yet – thanks for all the suggestions by the way, but want to run them by the boss and see what sticks – or a format, but what is the...

WSU set to face Oregon State 

COUGARS We got to the Spokane Arena early today for a lot of reasons, but the main one is simple. This is my final day as The Spokesman-Review's Washington State beat writer and we wanted it to last as long as possible. Read on.

Another in a long line of morning posts 

COUGARS What is it with dogs and squirrels? No reason, and no relevance, but just wondered if you knew of some longstanding war between the two species. Our dog, Yogi (named after a certain catcher) and the gray-white squirrel that lives in our maple tree,...

WSU blown out by Oregon, 92-75 

COUGARS I've been watching Washington State basketball off-and-on since the early 1980s, real closely the past five years. And I don't remember a poorer defensive showing by the Cougars. Read on.
