Hot Cougar Action: Monday morning trivia

Riddle me this.

USA TODAY Sports

It's the end of the season and I'm running low on trivia questions so we're going to go a different route today and try out a couple of riddles. They are fairly straight forward and give clues to notable names in Washington State athletic history. Players, coaches, administrators, anyone and any sport could be included.

Q1: I came to WSU from New Orleans. When it comes to the charity stripe, I was as good as it gets. I made my final shot in Friel Court. You may think of me when you hear certain songs by Coldplay.

Q2: My arrival at WSU was unexpected. I wasn't much of a fan of opposing crowds, or sleeves for that matter. WSU didn't win many games during my Cougar career, but I'm still well thought of. Who am I?

Baseball:

The Cougars added a major bullet point to their potential NCAA Tournament resume on Sunday when they knocked off Arizona State, winning the three-game series with the Sun Devils. For a team which has had issues on the road all season, this weekend was an excellent step in the right direction.

Overreacting to No. 18 Arizona State baseball losing its first series of the season is easy, even natural, because it occurred at home at the start of the Pac-12 gantlet against an unranked opponent.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Washington State baseball made history, Sunday. The Cougars won a series at No. 14 Arizona State for the first time in school history with an 11-8 victory at Packard Stadium.

Football recruiting:

WSU is one of first teams showing interest in 6-foot-5 wide receiver Nicolas Fuller. Fuller is from Texas and is receiving interest from SMU as well. I can't remember, but I think WSU may have won a couple of recruiting battles with SMU in the past ... oh that's right.
