WSU knocked off Washington on Saturday and we have recaps and highlights.

One of the most anticipated sports weekends in Seattle history got off to a good start on Saturday, at least for those who root for the college team on the Eastern side of the state.

Despite a precarious finish -- thanks to some poor free-throw shooting -- WSU notched its second Pac-12 win of the season, knocking off rival Washington. Kyle Sherwood wrote a lot of words and created some Vines of the game, which you can check out here.

It's worth repeating, D.J. Shelton finished with 20 points and 18, yes 18 rebounds. The game also included a 23-3 run by WSU, it was neat. If Sherwoods' Vines weren't enough for you, here are some highlights and a postgame interview with DaVonte Lacy.
