In case you missed it last night, the Cougs fell behind big on the road, used a late offensive barrage to cut the deficit to three before coming up short and losing to
UCLA Gonzaga 89-81.
Craig was all over that game yesterday, so instead of recapping the happenings here, I'll just send you to his post from last night.
Here are three more basketball links covering the game with a few football links after the jump.
Cougars Can't Complete Comeback, Fall 89-81 to Gonzaga - The Washington State University Official Athletic Site
Washington State clawed back from a big deficit to cut Gonzaga's lead to 77-73 with 3 minutes left but freshman Kevin Pangos tied a school record with nine 3-pointers and finished with 33 points to lead No. 22 Gonzaga to an 89-81 victory over the Cougars on Monday night..

One down, two to go. The Cougars still have an outside shot at six wins and a bowl berth, something Utah has already clinched. After losing to California, offensive guard John Fullington pointed to an unlikely source for motivation: the Huskies. Last year, the Cougars’ rivals were 3-6 and needed to win three consecutive games to become bowl-eligible. They did. Now WSU is trying the same unlikely path.

And then there's Jedidiah "Jed" Collins...who? Collins, a 2004 Mission Viejo High graduate, is the Saints starting fullback. Quite an accomplishment considering the 6-1, 255-pound blocker is on his seventh team since he signed as a free agent out of Washington State.
