WSU women arrive in Atlanta in preparation for WNIT semifinal

The Cougs have arrived in Georgia ahead of the WNIT Final Four game tonight and hit the streets of Atlanta. And, yes, DJ Khaled got involved.

Forget the South Carolina men. The 16-19 Washington State women are the feelgood, underdog story of March Madness.

It might not be the NCAA Tournament, but it's still the postseason, and the Cougs are still looking for a championship. And so far, they've looked good enough to get there.

On Tuesday, the team had a full day in Atlanta to get ready for Georgia Tech. The official WSU Athletics Youtube account chronicled their day in peach state which included a practice and a trip to a local aquarium.

But they didn't tell the whole story. The trip also included a special visit from rapper and noted snapchat enthusiast DJ Khaled, who gave a shoutout to Cougar fans everywhere.

Sure, it's just the WNIT, but this trip to the tournament semifinals could be huge for the Cougs. They're a young team, made even younger after being hit with a long slate of injuries, and these extra games in a sudden death environment will help their development in a big way. Plus, it's a bunch of 18-22 year old having fun doing what they love.

The Cougs tip off against Georgia Tech tonight at 4 o'clock pacific time and you can watch it live on ESPN3.
