HOT COUGAR ACTION: Recapping A Busy Week

The month of June has been relatively quiet for WSU news, but that all changed this week. This past week would have been busy by September standards. In case you missed any of the action, here are a few of the important posts from the last few days.

It was a busy week for recruiting news with five new verbal commitments. Kyle covered all of the action starting with Markell Sanders. Peyton Pelluer was next to commit followed by River Cracraft and Gerard Wicks. Cole Madison's verbal commitment rounded out the week.

Other WSU news included Bill Moos' radio interview, the release of WSU's 2010-2011 APR scores and the announcement Aron Baynes made the 2012 Australian Olympic basketball team.

On the fun side of things, Jeff told the story of his favorite WSU highlight, while BandGeek81 shared her favorite WSU story.

Just a hunch, but I'm guessing there wont be quite as much news next week.
