Long layoff almost over


In Day 10 of Cougar Basketball Held Hostage, the plucky Washington State men's team travels to Seattle for a day of interviews, events and the like before finally being released tomorrow before the West Side public.

The Cougar Hardwood Classic, which will be televised by FSN if you can't get to Seattle, ends a string of 11 days without a game for the seventh-ranked Cougars. It also is a chance for Seattle-area WSU fans to see the team live, and they seem to be turning out. The Cougars expect a crowd of more than 10,000.
