EWU volleyball coach Benson takes leave of absence

After spending much of the spring battling throat cancer, Eastern Washington women's volleyball head coach Wade Benson will take an indefinite leave of absence beginning Friday, the school announced Thursday.

Associate head coach Michael King will lead the program in Benson's absence.

“Eastern Washington Volleyball is in great hands,” Benson said. “The players are ready for a great season. I want to thank EWU for its outstanding support of myself and my family.”

Area women’s basketball teams look to rebound after tough week

June Daugherty summed it up quite simply.

“We have to be able to rebound,” the Washington State women’s basketball coach said in a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

Daughtery was speaking literally, of course, about rebounding in order to get more looks at second and third shots in an effort to jumpstart the Cougars’offense – which has been out of sync and is still adjusting after losing guard Ireti Amojo, a key component to WSU’s offense.  

It’s not just the Cougars that need to rebound, however. After last week, all area Division I women’s basketball teams are looking to bounce back from losses – some more surprising than others. Read on for the rest of my unedited area college women's basketball notebook, which will run in tomorrow's paper.
