WSU pulls away in second half for exhibition win

PULLMAN – It wasn’t pretty. But these kinds of games rarely are, especially when a team like Washington State is trying to replace its starting point guard and four departed seniors.

WSU basketball team moves on without senior point guard Reggie Moore

PULLMAN – From an outsider’s perspective, it has been a somewhat tumultuous – and, to be sure, busy – offseason for the Washington State basketball team. There have been personnel changes, most notably the dismissal of senior point guard Reggie Moore in late September. There was a coaching change, with the addition of assistant Ray Lopes, and former assistant Jeff Hironaka moving to a role as director of player development.

Hironaka’s role switches with WSU basketball

PULLMAN – Ken Bone’s desire for a wider recruiting reach means a position change for one of Washington State’s basketball coaches. Jeff Hironaka, who served as an assistant under Bone the past three seasons, will now take on the role of director of player personnel/special assistant to the head coach. In his place, Bone will hire a new assistant coach, ideally someone with the ability to recruit in areas in which the current staff typically hasn’t.
