Good morning, Coug fans- and Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe and fun evening. I know I’m excited for 2020 to be over. It’s also officially the year I graduate college, which is fun.

I’ve been pondering ways to kick off the year and some resolutions to try, but the best thing I can think of to start the year?

Washington State women’s basketball. Today. In a few hours, actually. Tip off is at 11 am, and you can watch it with Pac 12 Plus.

Charlisse Leger-Walker continues to dominate, and has a current hot streak of double digit points, and made Pac 12 Freshman of the Week again! The most she’s currently played was against Oregon, but she always gets about a half hour of playing time.

As for Utah- what can we expect?

They’ve got a 2-3 record currently, they beat Oregon State and Montana State. Their leading scorer, Brynna Maxwell, put up 34 points against the Beavs. She leads Utah in overall points, field goals, and three pointers. I would also not recommend fouling her, as she leads the team in free throws as well.

Kemery Martín is next in terms of field goals- she’s racked up 19 so far.

Their defensive stand out looks to be Lola Pendande, which makes sense as she is 6’4”. She’s the rebound leader, averaging 6.7 a game.

Alright Coug fans, I hope you feel a bit more prepared to watch us beat Utah- let’s ring in the New Year with a Coug win!

I know this year has not been easy, and the seasons of sports we did get have been unconventional, to put things politely. But we stuck together, and we crawled through. Thank you guys for always being one of my favorite parts of my year. I hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2021!
