Remember those dark days immediately after Tony left when it seemed the WSU basketball team was going to lose everything it had built in the previous six years? Klay was going to leave, Xavier Thames wanted out of his commitment, and the future of every other player seemed uncertain. Well times certainly have changed.
Ken Bone and his staff have not only been able to keep all the current players intact, he has now brought in two very impressive and important pieces. The latest, Steven Bjornstad, is very likely to earn playing time next season in what once was a very thin Cougar front line. Last year's recruiting class was pegged as one of the greatest in Washington State history. This one may prove to be just as valuable, what with the way Brock Motum is tearing up the world right now.
