The wounds Washington State suffered during Saturday’s loss to Stanford could be divided into two categories: those that were inflicted by the Cougars themselves and those that were inflicted by Oscar Da Silva.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Maybe it’s only fitting. Tommy Lasorda, the former Spokane Indians (and Los Angeles Dodgers) manager died late Thursday. He was 93 years old. He was not only a Hall of Fame manager but a master storyteller as well. Just about every Spokane baseball fan around the Lilac City back then has one about the gregarious manager. So do we.
One of the most experienced quarterbacks on the transfer market will move across the country to finish his career at Washington State.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • It should be an enjoyable weekend. After all, it’s a weekend. In January. Which means football, basketball and a bunch of gloomy weather. That’s a recipe for fun if you have a decent TV, reliable cable and some time off.
BERKELEY, Calif. – Most of Washington State’s basketball players hadn’t left the general Palouse region in at least six months – let alone for a basketball game – before boarding a plane for the Bay Area on Wednesday. Understandably, Kyle Smith was anxious to see how a young team with three freshman starters would fare in a setting other than the one that played host to the first nine games of the season.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Brigham Young University quite possibly features the second-best men’s basketball team in the West Coast Conference. Which means the gap between the No. 1 team and the rest of the WCC is unfathomably large.
A handful of Washington State's opponents have faced a Cougars team at less than full strength this season. This week, Kyle Smith's group will encounter a pair of Pac-12 opponents dealing with roster attrition of their own.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • What are Wednesdays for, exactly, these days? It wasn’t that long ago, the day was the middle of the typical work week (still is), when people would leave the office (does that happen anymore?) and celebrate (ditto) being over the hump to the weekend. Now it just seems like another day. Though we try to fill it with a little of this and a little of that.
The Washington State women will play host to No. 1 Stanford on Jan. 27 to make up for the postponed Dec. 8 contest between the schools. A game time wasn’t announced.
Jim Shaw wears two hats for Washington State’s basketball team: full-time assistant coach, part-time rehabilitation specialist.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Near and far. That’s where our news comes from this amazing Tuesday morning, though even the far has connections to the near.
The Gonzaga women moved up two spots, to 21st, in Monday’s Associated Press Top 25 poll, while surprising Washington State received votes for the first time in more than two years.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • An NFL season does something to a team’s fans. The week-to-week rollercoaster drives them batty, in the best of times. And this certainly isn’t the best of times. So the Seahawks’ 12-4 regular season may not have brought the joy it probably should have. Which is too bad.
When Lincoln Victor announced plans to transfer from the University of Hawaii last month, many pegged Washington State as a potential landing spot for the wide receiver.
When we look around our world, we can find all kinds of shadows. One way we can explore the answer to your shadow question is with a little experiment. My friend Anya Rasmussen, a physics professor at Washington State University, told me all about it. First, you will need to cast your shadow on a wall.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • A Saturday checklist. Gonzaga rolls. Check. COVID-19 causes issues. Check. Pac-12 loses bowl game. Check. Washington State wins. Well, close.
In Kyle Smith’s first season, Washington State looked the part of a team that was beginning to close the gap on the rest of the Pac-12 Conference. The early stages of Smith’s second season in Pullman may be more promising than those in 2019-20.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • Let’s see. Alabama is really good. So, it turns out is Ohio State. Probably Clemson too, though the Tigers didn’t show it New Year’s Day. After that there is the great divide. Every one of the remaining FBS football teams are on the other side. Isn’t that the way it is almost every year?
Charlisse Leger-Walker scored 23 points and had four steals as Washington State held off a late Utah push to earn a 79-74 victory Saturday in Salt Lake City.
A GRIP ON SPORTS • How did 2020 end? A bowl game brawl added a bit of a bang to its whimpering retreat in the sports world. Add in some college basketball and you are up to date. On to 2021 seems to be the motto of everyone from Miami to Seattle and all points in between.
