How far will WSU basketball go next season?

NCAA Basketball: Washington State at Arizona State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

I suppose the first response to the question asked in this headline is “Will there even be a WSU basketball season next year?”

The second response is probably “Will CJ Elleby be on the team or in the NBA?”

I don’t know the answer to either of those questions, but what I do know is it feels good to be mad at Joe Lunardi again.

Lunardi, ESPN’s resident bracketologist, released an update to his summer bracketology projection last week and for the first time in years I got mad at him for not including WSU. I was actually excited to open a bracketology projection in June to see if WSU was included. And I was actually mad not to see WSU listed. Screw you Joe Lunardi.

I can’t tell you how fun it is to feel that way again.

It might also be a little bit of a pipe dream, but not that big of a pipe dream. For the sake of this exercise let’s just assume there is a standard season next year. That still leaves the large question of Elleby, and as Jeff noted recently it’s a large question, but we can discuss both scenarios.

So, how do you think WSU’s 2020-21 basketball season will go?

  1. If CJ Elleby returns to WSU the Cougars will finish the season playing in the _____________
  2. If CJ Elleby does not return to WSU the Cougars will finish the season playing in the _____________

A) NCAA Tournament


C) CBI / other postseason tournament

D) Pac-12 Tournament

What do you think?
