Hot Cougar Action: The day after Washington

USA TODAY Sports

You may have turned off the game after WSU went down 19 and if you did you missed one heck of a finish. Fortunately for you, there are plenty of recaps in today's links.

As Jeff wrote last night, WSU's Pac-12 Tournament loss was such a fitting end to a rough season. WSU has endured bad years before, but the way the Cougars lost games this season -- including Wednesday's was just ... maddening. So close, yet so far.

We've endured more than our fair share of disappointing recaps this season so what's one more time.

LAS VEGAS — It might not have been an instant classic, but Washington and Washington State waged a hoops battle Wednesday night that will not be soon forgotten.

Baseball:

And just like that the WSU baseball team is thrust into the forefront. Unfortunately the Cougars are coming off a rough four game series at UTSA and will begin a three-game series at Arizona State on Friday. WSU has taken care of business at home, but the road struggles are a major issue and ASU will be the biggest test yet. Please don't get swept, Cougs.
