The Washington State men's basketball team returns to action tonight against UCLA. The game tips off at 7:30 p.m. and there will be no TV broadcast. It's "he traveled and got away with it" time once again.
According to the game notes, WSU has faced UCLA in Los Angeles 54 times and they've lost 52 of those contests. If it were 1957 and the Cougars got a penny for every point of that 0.037 winning percentage, they could buy an entire stamp. Let's hope there was plenty of ecstasy to go around at the rave last night and UCLA comes out a little sluggish.
In other news, sources close to the situation have confirmed to CougCenter that Jeff and Sarah Nusser welcomed the newest addition to their family late Wednesday night. In just a few short years, the Nusser boys will be in the driveway playing basketball while Jeff stands off to the side and calculates their shooting efficiency and rebounding rate in real time. Congrats Jeff!
