If you live in the Pacific Northwest you will likely experience record-or near-record temperatures today. The “hottest day ever in ______” talk got me thinking about the hottest performances by a WSU athlete. So in an effort to beat the heat, I collected a few highlights to enjoy those efforts once again.

Let’s start with Klay Thompson in the Pac-12 Tournament where he scored 43 points including eight three-pointers.

I couldn’t find highlights of Jerome Harrison’s 260-yard performance against UCLA in 2005, but let’s be honest, Jerome was on fire for his entire career.

The weather is hot today, but Noah Williams against Stanford was still hotter.

Rueben Mayes’ 357-yard effort against Oregon is mandatory for this list.

Let’s ignore the final play of this game, but Connor Halliday and Vince Mayle were as hot as it gets in 2014 against California.

This isn’t even a video, but obviously, Gardner Minshew is on this list.

Not very much to say here. Washington State has never been known as a major recruiting power but I'm a bit surprised at how slow things have been for the Cougars given the excitement Nick Rolovich injected into the program.
