Recapping WSU’s really bad basketball weekend

NCAA Basketball: Washington at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a while since we’ve seen really good basketball in Pullman. But, this weekend was a showcase of futility even by recent standards.

Jeff and P.J. already covered the men’s basketball loss to lowly call. Jeff’s lede recapping the game sums up the current state of the program.

There have been too many low points in Ernie Kent’s tenure to count, but if someone was industrious and/or silly enough to actually put such a list together, this weekend would undoubtedly be on it after the Washington State Cougars lost to the California Golden Bears, 76-69.

The WSU women’s basketball team also lost to Cal this weekend, closing its regular season with an 80-58 loss to the Golden Bears. On the bright side, the Cal women’s basketball team is much better than its men’s squad. On the downside, the Cougars finished the season with four straight losses and a 9-20 overall record.

Oh, and WSU got out-rebounded by a single Cal player. BY EIGHT REBOUNDS.

California’s Kristine Anigwe finished the game with 32 points and 30 rebounds. Yes, you read that right, 30 rebounds. The Cougars combined for 22 rebounds as a team.

Anigwe is the first NCAAW player with a 30-30 game in 17 years.

The Cougs are making history on the basketball court these days. Too bad they are setting records no one wants to hold.
