Hot Cougar Action: Basketball power rankings

The beginning of the week brings power rankings and we take a closer look at where WSU stands in the latest morning links.


Men's basketball

The WSU men's basketball team keeps winning, but wins over the likes of Buffalo, Jackson State and Idaho State have done little to help them move up the power rankings. WSU checked in at No. 11 in the latest rankings from Inside Bay Area.

11. Washington State (9-4): The Cougars have won seven of their past eight, dropping only a two-point decision to regional rival Gonzaga. Senior Brock Motum has scored at least 23 points in five of the past seven games. But there isn't enough else here.


Another day, another look back at a bowl from WSU athletics. Today is a recap of the 1916 Rose Bowl.

PASADENA, Calif. - A crowd of 10,000 was on hand at the Pasadena Rose Bowl to watch as undefeated Washington State took on eastern power Brown in the first of the continuous Rose Bowls.

Women's basketball

Like the men's team, the WSU women's basketball team is also near the bottom of the latest power rankings. However, the women's team are ranked higher than the men, despite a 4-7 record.

Semi related WSU teeth tattoo news

It's not everyday I get to write about teeth tattoo's so we are going to take some morning link liberties here. And hey, if you've always wanted a WSU logo tattooed on your tooth, you're now in luck. Seriously. No really, this is a thing.
