WSU will take on ASU in Pullman tonight but before then there is plenty to read. Nusser logged some late hours last night and wrote this post on Brock Motum's minutes. If that wasn't enough, Christian Caple took a closer look at WSU's second half struggles.
That they were in a position to win was no surprise. WSU has held second-half leads in 19 of its 20 games this season – that’s 95 percent – the only exception being a 78-41 loss to Kansas.

COUGARS HOST SUN DEVILS THURSDAY IN 8 P.M. GAME: Washington State University men's basketball (11-9, 2-5) hopes to keep the momentum going following Saturday's win as it hosts Arizona State (16-5, 5-2) in a late game at 8 p.m. PT, Thursday, Jan. 31 at Beasley Coliseum.
PULLMAN – Their relief wasn’t hard to understand. After losing so many close games this season, the Washington State Cougars finally pulled one out on Saturday by beating Oregon State, 71-68, making clutch free throws and holding on down the stretch.
If one interview with Paul Wulff wasn't enough, Wulff spoke to the media again on Wednesday.
It pained him to watch the Cougars fail. Their 3-9 record was a step back from the 4-8 record they posted in Wulff’s final season, and he admits it was hard not to wonder what they could have done if he’d been allowed to coach the final year of his contract.
"I clearly thought that was a very bowl-capable type of a football team," Wulff said. "Again, that’s my opinion, but it was disappointing when things like that happened. Young men come there and have a belief in how we were building the program and what we were doing, and bought into Washington State and the notion they were going to be part of the program we were building, and then it gets changed on them."
Paul Wulff is in New Orleans. He is in meetings, he is in hotel rooms, he is nose-to-the-gameplan as the San Francisco 49ers prepare for their Super Bowl XLVII matchup against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
