Nearly 150 men's college basketball teams were selected to one of the various tournaments on Sunday, but Washington State was not one of them. Since the Cougars won't be adding any chapters to their postseason record book, we'll take a look back and see how well you know the pages that have already been written.

WSU has made five NCAA Tournament appearances since 1980 (six overall), that was the easy part. How well do you remember those seasons? For today's trivia contest you must fill in the blanks below for each year

Year: _____ Regular season leading scorer: _____, NCAA Tournament leading scorer: _____

Year: _____ Regular season leading scorer: _____, NCAA Tournament leading scorer: _____

Year: _____ Regular season leading scorer: _____, NCAA Tournament leading scorer: _____

When it comes to the leading scorer, we're looking for total points, not scoring average. So, for example, if a star 6-foot-9 forward was setting scoring records and averaging 18.8 PPG before blowing out his knee against Oregon, he's probably not going to be one of the answers, even if he led the team in scoring average.
