TWO STAR California high school running backs and future Washington State Cougars helped their teams to playoff victories over the weekend that propel them into their respective state semifinals. One of them -- Jamal Morrow -- rushed for 174 first-half-yards but really turned heads via the air game.
BEST OF MAXIM
Through the first three games of the season, Kansas had yet to dominate an opponent in a way that made you stop and gasp at the team’s potential. That came to a resounding end on Monday night, as the Jayhawks ran Washington State off the Sprint Center floor with a dominating 78-41 victory in the semifinals of the CBE Classic.
Kansas will look to build off its great second half against Chattanooga last Thursday when the Jayhawks head to Kansas City and the Sprint Center tonight to face Washington State in the championship semifinal of the CBE Hall of Fame Classic.
Saturday's showdown with Washington State may have marked the final farewell for a number of Sun Devil seniors as Arizona State played its final home game of the season, but perhaps more importantly, it marked a much welcomed change as ASU snapped its four game losing streak, defeating the Cougars 46-7 and became bowl eligible for the second consecutive season.
THE COUGARS WERE a sobering sight Saturday afternoon. After last week’s promising near-comeback at home against a superior UCLA team, the team seemed poised to carry that momentum over to the desert and give a struggling Arizona State all it could handle. Instead, they got burned, big time, leaving many asking where this team actually stands.
WASHINGTON STATE'S season from hell reached new depths at the hands of the Sun Devils on Saturday. The Cougs now have but one game left to avoid the ultimate humilation: going winless in conference play for the second time in four seasons. WSU lost its fifth consecutive game at ASU, 46-7, in dispiriting fashion.
PULLMAN – The Cougars were short a few good men on Monday. Still, they sired fire and energy on the practice field all evening and are clearly looking to instill the “next man up” philosophy. Coaches concur that the team has grown this season – and has a lot to look forward to in 2013.
HERE WE ARE, days from the end of the football season at Washington State. It started full of promise, only to find out that these transition years are often full of tumult and agony. Can the Cougs grab a win against UW and start their offseason on an up note?
