Good morning, Coug fans!

I know I’m fast forwarding and leaping beyond seasons with this one, but the momentum keeps pushing forward for your Washington State Women’s Basketball team. It was announced that our Cougs will be getting some work done in a typical vacation spot, I’ll let you guess...

That’s right- WSU Women’s Hoops are headed to the Baha Mar Hoops Pink Flamingo Championship in the beautiful Bahamas. Let’s take a peak into what that tournament will look like, just to get you geared up.

The event will take place in Nassau, and runs from November 22nd through the 27th. I know football will still hold focus during that time, but if it’s looking like another ignore the Apple Cup season, at least we’ll all have something to look forward to! (She says in jest, we all make those jokes).

Washington State will face off against The University of Miami on November 25th, and while I did just limit football mention, whenever there is mention of UMiami, I am reminded of another face off from 2015- Sun Bowl turned Snow Bowl, anybody? Cougs beat Miami 20-14, and my dad and I happened to be there. Perhaps an omen that he and I should head to the Bahamas? Wishful thinking perhaps.

Saturday November 27th the Cougs and the North Carolina State “wolfpack” will square up. And we know biologically speaking, a cougar always beats a wolf.

I’m looking forward to seeing what our Cougs can do down in the Bahamas, and forever glad I can root for both WBB and football in tandem this year. After the past week, we could all use a sports win right about now.

I hope everyone is staying safe and hydrated. Keep your eyes out for more WSU WBB updates, go Cougs!
