June Daugherty gets extended, Yale Rosen wins Player of the Week

A then beardless Yale Rosen - WSU Athletic Communications

It was a busy Monday off the court/field for WSU with one coach getting expended and a player taking home some conference accolades.

For a Monday in April, yesterday was a fairly busy day for Washington State. The big news of the day came in women's basketball where WSU extended Jun Daugherty's contract through the 2018-19 season.

The women's basketball team is coming off its most successful season in two decades, finishing the year with a trip to the WNIT. Bill Moos rewarded the success with an extension.

"June, her staff and the entire team are to be commended for a truly fine season,"Bill Moos said, via a release. "Reaching the postseason for the first time in 23 years is a notable achievement. I'm looking forward to watching this program continue to improve in the years to come."

On the baseball side, Donnie Marbut didn't receive an extension, but one of his players did receive some recognition. Following a 7-for-10 series against California, Yale Rosen was named Pac-12 Player of the Week. He finished the week with two doubles, two RBI and two stolen bases. Rosen continues to mash this season and is arguably the best hitter in the Pac-12. He's batting .396 on the season, good for third in the Pac-12. He's fourth in the conference with a .483 on base percentage and leads the Pac-12 in slugging at .624.

Rosen is first Cougar to win Pac-12 POTW since 2012 and the 66th overall.
