The momentum the Washington State men’s basketball team has built during a two-game winning streak will be tested during the final week of basketball before the Pac-12 tournament begins. The Cougars (13-15, 6-10 Pac-12) head to Los Angeles for a pair of rematches against teams that each beat WSU in Pullman earlier this year.

In recent years college football recruits have committed to programs earlier, only to change their minds at least once before signing their letters of intent. That trend might have even reached its zenith with the 2017 signing class, that saw every Pac-12 school lose longtime commits and scramble to fill their spots.
PULLMAN – Ben Moos scooped his own announcement. While thanking his coaches and parents – Bill and Kendra Moos, who were seated on each side of Ben in front of a table filled will college hats – Ben Moos asked ...

The stereotype about young assistant coaches in college football is that they are ace recruiters, hired despite their lack of experience because of their ability to form connections with high school prospects. Derek Sage – the new inside receivers coach at Washington State – proves the rule, although his biggest recruits were not football players at all. They were wives.
There are few few institutions more defined by their diversity than a college athletic department. Washington State fans saw players excel on the athletic fields in 2016, but it was my pleasure to let readers know that the Cougars were composed of young adults who overcame cancer, dealt with discrimination on-campus, hunted rabbits with their hand and much more.

You can think of it two ways: Luke Falk went through his reads, weighed the high risk/high reward options and checked down to something more prudent – coming back to play his senior year at Washington State University. The safety-valve pass to the running back of career decisions. Or he’s airing it out downfield, looking for the game-changer both for him and the Cougars program. You know, letting it rip – the way coach Mike Leach lamented Falk and his teammates didn’t do in their last public appearance two weeks ago.
