Cougars Begin Sloan Era With Quality Athletes

In 1895, a century ago, Washington State started its track and field program. No, John Chaplin wasn't the coach. But he was from 1973 through last season, sticking out as the most visible figure in collegiate track in the region.

State Of Mind Leader Takes Care Of Business

State of Mind front-man Lincoln Kroll is one heck of an ambitious musician. The leader of the progressive, mind rock band, which plays the Big Dipper tonight, hasn't been waiting around for some big label to finance his band's recording projects, promotional campaigns and tours.

String Quartet Will Perform Works By Trio Of Composers

The Spokane String Quartet will span the centuries and many moods Sunday with works by Schubert, Ravel and Shostakovich. Ravel's Quartet in F major, his only contribution to the genre, was written early in his career. Shostakovich, in addition to cranking out symphonies, wrote 15 quartets. His 13th, in B-flat minor, was written in 1970, toward the end of his life.

Guitarist Mize At Guitar Gallerie

Guitarist Bill Mize should not be mistaken for one of those ubiquitous finger pickers whose work meanders prettily but never gets to the point. Mize, who will play tonight at Guitar Gallerie, 421 W. Riverside, has chops to burn, but it's his compositional sense that sets him apart.

Washington State At Cal

The Cougars (9-8 Pacific-10, 15-11 overall) hope to bounce back from Thursday night's loss to Stanford and earn a split of their Bay Area trip when they take on the Golden Bears (5-12, 13-13) at 3 p.m. today at Harmon Arena. At a glance WSU coach Kevin Eastman is hanging on to a faint hope that a win over Cal might still get his team into the NCAA Tournament provided Washington upsets Stanford and the Cougars finish alone in fifth place in the Pac10. But in all likelihood, this game is for a berth in the National Invitation Tournament. WSU might already be in, but the Golden Bears, who had taken unpredictability to a whole new level this season, must win if they hope to play on. Cal dropped an 83-71 decision to the Cougars in Pullman and has lost 11 of 16 games since, including eight of its last 10. The Bears are a miserable 1-6 at home against Pac-10 opponents and are coming off a terrible loss to UW Thursday. Still, coach Todd Bozeman has an impressive arsenal that includes senior forward Monty Buckley and Tremaine Fowlkes, the Pac-10's freshman of the year. The Cougars keep getting splendid play out of junior forward Mark Hendrickson, but need much better consistency from the perimeter.
