The WSU men's basketball team is set to take on Gonzaga on Wednesday and according to Ken Bone the Cougars may have the services of DaVonte Lacy against the Bulldogs. Bone said his guess was Lacy would indeed play. How much remains a question, but that is certainly a positive development. Bone's Monday press conference can be found below.

1. Ziggity Zags: If Wazzu holds Gonzaga to less than 85 points and/or loses by less than 20 Wednesday in Pullman, consider it as a moral victory for the Cougars. The Zags are that good, and the Cougs are ... not.

If you were looking for some closure to the Austin Seferian-Jenkins punch fiasco, here it is. ASJ spoke about the incident on Monday and here is a little bit of what he had to say according to Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune.

"Whoever that guy was, it's not a big deal," Seferian-Jenkins said Monday. "He obviously was intoxicated, I hope, intoxicated or something like that. I'm not really worried about it. I'm over it. I think everyone else should be over it. I still think people should rush the field, I think that's part of college football and what makes it special."

Seferian-Jenkins said UW officials asked if he wanted them to pursue the assailant, and he said no.

Can't commend Seferian-Jenkins enough for how he handled the entire situation.
