Cougars take another step toward the postseason

COUGARS, VANDALS, HUSKIES

We posted the Associated Press stories about the two Palouse schools last night (click here if you want to read them), but there's more available on the WSU win.

Glenn Kasses covers it here. The victory gives WSU its best start since the elder Bush's administration, with a tough game looming Thursday night in Key Arena against San Diego State.

A win there would boost the Cougs' non-conference record to 11-1. Even if they go 9-9 in the Pac-10, they would end up 20-10, easily good enough to earn an NCAA berth.

For more, check Glenn's blog.

We ran the AP story on Idaho's loss at North Dakota State, the same story we posted here last night.

For more on the Vandals, there's always Jim's blog.

The Huskies were looking for someone to run over after their first loss of the season. The victim just happened to be Portland State. The final: 105-73 UW.

Here is the Seattle Times' story, the one from the P-I, Everett and Tacoma. The Times also ran a sidebar on UW's rebounding.
