WSU women's basketball hosts senior day

A pair of players will be honored before their last regular season home game on Saturday.

WSU Athletic Communications

The college basketball season is winding down which means its time for senior nights to start popping up. The men's basketball team will hold its senior night next Saturday, but before they do the women's basketball team will hold its this afternoon.

The Cougars only have two departing seniors with Tia Presley and Shalie Dheensaw set to be honored before the game against USC. With Dheensaw out due to a knee injury, Presley will be the only senior playing for the Cougars. Depending on how the postseason shakes out, it's possible the Cougars could play another home game, but for now this might be the seniors last game in Pullman.

Presley is putting the finishing touches on an all-time career at WSU. She'll enter the game on Saturday No. 7 on the career scoring list. She has a good shot to move up to No. 5 against the Trojans and will likely end her career as the No. 3 scorer in WSU women's basketball history. That's an impressive feat considering she lost half of her sophomore season to a knee injury. She ranks highly in a few other categories and has combined with Lia Galdeira to give WSU one of the better backcourts in the Pac-12.

WSU's game against USC is scheduled to tip at 3 p.m. PT and will be broadcast on Pac-12 Networks.

Cowboys Draft Profile: DL Xavier Cooper | NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
Verdict: Third Rounder Cooper is a rare prospect whose Combine numbers tell most of the story of his status. He has the bust and quickness to give a team good A-Gap pressure, but he's not stout enough against the run to be an every down defensive tackle yet.
