WSU’s win over Northwestern, the day after


Good morning from the Vince Grippi Travel Agency. How can we help you? Read on.

WSU wins 69-66 in overtime


It's late. Later than it needed to be. But the bottom line is Washington State held off Northwestern, 69-66, in overtime and will play in the NIT semifinals next week in New York. Read on.

WSU leads 38-31 at half


Halftime and Washington State controlled much of the first half. But the final 4 minutes – roughly akin to when Northwestern coach Bill Carmody's technical when he had to be restrained by his assistant coach – the Wildcats clawed their way into it, cutting the lead – it had been as much as 14 – to as little as eight. Then they hit the final shot and went into the locker room trailing by seven. All in all, after shooting 40 percent and struggling at times beyond the arc, not a bad deal for Northwestern. WSU led by 14 after Carmody's T at the 4:22 mark. … The offensive star for WSU has been Brock Motum, who came off the bench and found enough room to score 11 points. Klay Thompson has not really asserted himself offensively, having taken just seven shots. … DeAngelo Casto hasn't show any effects from his 24-hour suspension and has six points and five rebounds. … WSU's intensity waned down the stretch and Northwestern took advantage. … More later.

Pregame musings from WSU


It's pregame time. As I thought about it, I'm not sure there is more to add to the post I put up a few hours ago. But, because I get paid by the word, we have something. Read on.

More on Casto’s reinstatement


Washington State athletic director Bill Moos has decided to lift DeAngelo Casto's suspension and the junior will be allowed to play tonight against Northwestern. Read on.

Wednesday morning from WSU; Casto cited


It will be another late night for the Washington State Cougars tonight, with their National Invitation Tournament quarterfinal game with Northwestern not slated to tip until after 8 p.m. That, of course, isn't as late as WSU's game with Oklahoma State on Monday, but once again, the visiting fans watching on TV at home will be looking at an after-midnight finish. Fun for them. We have more on the game, the surrounding controversy concerning DeAngelo Casto and spring football. Read on.

UPDATE: We have another story on Casto pleading not guilty and, through his attorney, contesting the legality of the search.
