Hot Cougar Action: Wednesday morning news

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

A morning post of sorts.

Edit: Now with 100 percent more links.

For the first time since I started writing this morning post nearly a year and a half ago, the HCA will have no links.

Not because I didn't want to read through the terribleness that is WSU sports, but because my Comcast Internet abruptly died. Instead, I'm writing this on my iPhone and I'm unable to use the SB Nation clipping tool. I'll try to update the post at some point, assuming my Internet comes back, but until then there is plenty to discuss.

The WSU basketball team secured a fourth place finish in the CBE Classic on Tuesday and the Apple Cup is only two days away!
