Hot Cougar Action: It's finally gameday again

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

It feels like it's been months since the WSU basketball team was on the court but that ends tonight as the Cougars take on Idaho State

Men's basketball

Finally, a game. It's only been eight days since WSU played Buffalo, but it feels like we just went through an entire offseason. Tonight's game marks the end of the non-conference schedule, which is welcome news for those fans tired of seeing the Jackson States of the world on the schedule.

KENNEWICK – There was a time when Ken Bone wanted to play as many games in Pullman as possible. That’s where his Washington State team practices every day, the coach thought, so why shouldn’t they schedule all of their home games on their home floor?

Women's basketball

The men's team aren't the only ones returning to the court as WSU's women's team will head up to Spokane to face Gonzaga. WSU has lost to Gonzaga in the final seconds in two of the last three contests so hopefully today is the day they are able to get over the hump.
