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...

COUGARS FROM TUCSON -- Or at least we will be in Tucson, eventually. Making the drive from Phoenix in a bit. While I'm behind the wheel, you can pull up to your computer monitor and read the links we've provided for you, plus a conversation...

COUGARS FROM PULLMAN -- After such a big win, it's only right that we empty out the rest of our notebook, as well as provide you with the usual dose of daily links. Read on for a whole bunch of words and some video.

COUGARS FROM PULLMAN -- A very welcome sight greeted anyone who looked outside today: no snow. For now, anyway. Regardless, the California Golden Bears will be here today for a 3:05 p.m. tip against the Cougars, who will try to knock off a first-place team...

COUGARS FROM PULLMAN – Not going to bother explaining why I’m up this late. But here’s a hint: it involved snow and a 2002 Honda Civic. Anyway, here’s your morning post, with some additional quotes from WSU’s win over Stanford.

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...

COUGARS FROM PULLMAN – In Seattle, they’re losing their minds over the forecast of a few inches of snow. Here? The roads are coated and it’s business as usual. That applies to your morning links, too, so have at ‘em.

COUGARS FROM PULLMAN – Snoqualmie Pass was not friendly yesterday, but the Honda managed to plow through the slush, ice and snow and arrived safely back on the snow-covered Palouse. Though looking at the forecast, it seems we may have left the worst of this...

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.

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,...

COUGARS Walked out of the Spokane Arena last night and directly into a pouring rain. Oregon weather. Seemed sort of appropriate after the offensive showing the Ducks put on inside the place a couple hours earlier. Read on.
