I think it's safe to say, not many of us saw that coming. A 2-0 home stand with wins over two of the top teams in the conference? Well, alright then. I've watched the highlights a couple of times and I still cringe as I watch Jorge Gutierrez take the final shot. Most of us didn't get to watch it live (thanks for nothing Collier!), but for the sake of everyone's blood pressure, that may have been a good thing. See, instead of calling WSU to complain about the webcast failure, you should thank them for looking out for your health.
Before we get to the videos, we have postgame notes, postgame quotes, and official stats.

FROM PULLMAN — As usual, here's our quick overview of Washington State's 77-75 upset over California. There isn't nearly as much drama in this post as there was in the final minutes of the game we just watched. Read on anyway.

PULLMAN – Of all the last-minute madness witnessed at Beasley Coliseum on Saturday, one image endures. It is of Washington State coach Ken Bone, and his fist, and his arm, both of which sliced through the air around him as DaVonte Lacy’s 3-pointer split the twine and Lacy screamed in celebration after a foul was whistled against California guard Jorge Gutierrez.

PULLMAN — Washington State was the only Pac-12 Conference school that recruited DaVonte Lacy with much fervor, and Lacy is still plenty steamed about it. "After every game," Lacy said, "I hope every coach says, 'I wish I recruited him.'"

FROM PULLMAN — We've got a lot of basketball stuff to get to, but I wanted to post this video of Mike Leach's halftime speech at Beasley real quick. You can view it after the jump. It takes about a minute before he comes out onto the floor, FYI. Apologize in advance if it's shaky at all.
