Hot Cougar Action: WSU completes sweep of Brown

New, 4 comments

WSU needed to sweep their four-game series against Brown and they did just that, even though Monday's contest was closer than the previous three.

WSU Athletic Communications

It may not have been as impressive as their first three wins of the series, but WSU completed their four-game sweep of Brown on Monday with a 3-1 win.

After outscoring Brown 34-1 over the previous two games, Monday's win doesn't look impressive, but hey a win is a win. Now the Cougars will turn their attention to Pac-12 play beginning with Stanford this week. Friday will be a challenge for WSU as Stanford's Mark Appel is one of the top pitchers in the country.

This WSU team appears to have the potential to make a run to the NCAA Tournament, but we'll learn a lot over the next few weeks.

The Cougars’ pitching staff is another story. Their 4.00 earned run average and conference low 138 strikeouts are what is keeping them from actually competing in the conference. However, if their pitching staff can find a rhythm Washington State could most definitely compete, but that is unlikely.

Basketball:

More hot seat talk. The transition from the college basketball offseason to college football season cannot come soon enough.

KEN BONE, WASHINGTON STATE — The Cougars (13-19) finished last in the conference for the second time under coach Ken Bone and it’s unknown if he’ll return next season. He has three years left on his original deal. A buyout would cost WSU $2.55 million. Bone is 70-65 record (.519) in four seasons at WSU. However, his league record is 26-46 (.361) and he’s 0-4 in the conference tournament.
