I can't even count the number of times this has been asked since Mike Leach was introduced as the next head coach of the Washington State Cougars, but we finally have an answer. Will Leach be in attendance at Thursday's Cougar Hardwood Classic matchup between Washington State and Pepperdine in Seattle? "That's a stupid question."
From the Cougar Hardwood Classic website:
Idol Sports & Entertainment today announced that Mike Leach will be introduced during the seventh annual Cougar Hardwood Classic, featuring the Washington State University and Pepperdine University men’s basketball teams at KeyArena on Thursday, Dec. 22 at 7 p.m.
If you needed a bit of extra incentive to head on down to Seattle and watch some basketball on Thursday, there you go. Leach will likely be the halftime entertainment, and he'll probably give the adoring crowd a few fun quotes along the way. And who knows, maybe he'll have his assistant coaching staff -- the full coaching staff -- with him, as well!
Tickets can be found at Ticketmaster or you can grab one at Key Arena.
