Cougar basketball set to host ZZU Mania tonight in Bohler Gym

You’ll get your first chance to see the Cougar men on the court this season... And your second chance to see the Cougar women.

PULLMAN, WA - FEBRUARY 20: Washington State Cougars Women’s Basketball versus the University of Arizona Wildcats at Beasley Coliseum - Head Coach Kamie Ethridge Jack Ellis/CougCenter

November has arrived... And that means that basketball season is (nearly) here.

Over the weekend, the WSU women tipped off their campaign with an exhibition win at home over Westmont. The Cougar men won’t get the luxury of a practice game before tipping off on Monday against Texas State. What they will get, however, is a chance to join the WSU women later tonight for the annual ZZU Mania celebration.

Both teams will hit the court in Bohler Gym later tonight at 7pm for an open practice and skills showdown. We don’t know exactly what we have in store from the squads, but we do know that both head coaches are excited for the big event... One of them possibly more than the other...

While the teams have yet to officially announce what they have planned for ZZU Mania. Last year, in the return of the event from a COIVD hiatus, the two teams took part in a skills challenge, three-point contests and a dunk contest on the men’s side. Fans also got the opportunity to enjoy performances from the Crimson Girls and the WSU Pep Band. the ZZU CRU Twitter account gave us a quick highlight reel from last season’s event.

We can probably expect more the same tonight in Bohler. Festivities get started at 7 p.m. tonight and we expect the night to end with Mouhamed Gueye delivering some highlight-worthy dunk contest jams to cap off the night.
