Bone says suspended Moore may play

PULLMAN – Washington State basketball coach Ken Bone reiterated Tuesday there was no change in suspended point guard Reggie Moore’s status, but he did say there was a chance Moore could play Thursday against visiting Arizona State.

No. 5 KSU a tough test for Cougars

PULLMAN – When it comes to Friday’s visit by fifth-ranked Kansas State here to face Washington State in the Pac-10/Big 12 Hardwood Series, the Cougar fans have one question. WSU coach Ken Bone has another.

Coach has Bone to pick with Cougs

PULL- MAN – If this sports gig is all about taking them one game at a time – and we know that to be The Gospel – then there is no choice but to draw conclusions one game at a time. Today’s conclusion: Washington State has given up on this basketball season.

John Blanchette: Pac-10 ripe for Cougars to pounce

To review: In the past week, Oregon State suffered a 51-point defeat at home to a school that hasn’t played Division I basketball in 30 years, then showed up in Eugene a few days later and beat the team which sat atop the Pacific-10 Conference standings. And so we put it to you, the college basketball fan: Why not the Cougs?

Referees didn’t mess this one up

PULLMAN – Returning to the scene of Thursday evening’s crime, the heavy vibe at Friel Court not 48 hours later suggested that 5,967 grudge-holders had come looking for a new reason to express their lingering outrage. Surely they found fault with nearly every call that went against the home team Saturday, whistled by the unfortunate trio assigned to clean up after the mess left the other night. That’s when head bandito Mike Littlewood spirited away what would have been a Washington State victory over Oregon in overtime by forgetting that Rule 0, Section 0, article 0A states “Good judgment: have some and use it” – and that every other rule in the book hinges on that.

Cougs have easy time with Portland State

Ken Bone's new team, the Washington State University Cougars, had no trouble dealing with his old team, the Portland State University Vikings.

Bone feels at home in Evergreen State

PULLMAN – There’s really only one thing you need to know about new Washington State men’s basketball coach Ken Bone. Except for two youthful years spent in Turlock, Calif., he’s lived his entire life in Washington.

Blanchette: New guy might just stick around Pullman for a while

PULLMAN – Since so much rancor was expended over the last guy’s hasty escape, it seemed reasonable to ask Washington State’s new basketball coach Tuesday if he planned on fulfilling the terms of his contract. And, to be fair, to ask the athletic director if the school was going to let the new guy coach out the actual number of years spelled out in the fine print.

Cougars select Ken Bone

PULLMAN – The last time Washington State University went searching for a basketball coach, athletic director Jim Sterk shocked everyone by plucking Dick Bennett out of retirement in the Midwest. When it came time to hire someone to replace Bennett’s son Tony six years later, Sterk went in the other direction, literally and figuratively, hiring Portland State University’s Ken Bone, seemingly the frontrunner from the moment Tony Bennett announced he was leaving for the University of Virginia.
