Times have been tough for the Cougar women this year. Starting out 0-10 in conference, and struggling to gain momentum, WSU was in need of a benchmark win to show the program was still heading in the right direction.
Today, they got one.
Now, ASU isn't ranked, and they aren't what they used to be, mainly because Central Valley grads Emily Westerberg and Reagan Pariseau have graduated and moved on to bigger things [ed. note: Go Bears!]. However, they are still a team in the upper half of a historically strong Pac-10 women's conference.
The Cougars' 66-62 win over the Sun Devils, led by 33 from April Cook, gave WSU their first win in 13 years in Tempe. That's something to get excited about, especially for a team whose roster is roughly two-thirds freshmen and sophomores (sound familiar?).
Anyway, hat tip to June Daugherty and the players, and Go Cougs.
Now let's beat Arizona tonight for the gender-based sweep.
