WSU Cancels School, But Cougar Basketball Game Vs. Stanford On As Scheduled

New, 43 comments

You might have heard that there is a fair amount of snow in the Northwest. While there was about six inches of snow on the ground at my house when I woke up this morning, it seems there was just a wee bit more in Pullman, causing classes to be canceled today and tomorrow.

However, not even Snowpocalypse 2012 can stop basketball: Thursday's men's basketball game against Stanford in Pullman is on as scheduled at 7:05 p.m. In fact, they want you to come watch the team so badly, they're offering you $10 lower bowl tickets as an incentive to get you there.

You might note that WSU said "as of now" in the tweet that I linked, suggesting the game could still be postponed. But as noted by Christian Caple earlier, it likely would take something crazy like Stanford being unable to fly into Spokane tomorrow or bus down from there for that to happen. I would guess the likelihood of that happening would be rather small.

And if you were wondering, there's actually only one way for you to watch the game tomorrow if you don't plan on being one of the presumably hundreds in attendance: Via Cougars All-Access at WSUCougars.com. It'll cost you $9.95 for a month, although if it makes you feel any better, that's the only way to see Saturday's game against Cal, the Feb. 2 game against USC. Maybe that will make it worth it to you.
