PULLMAN – Washington State basketball opponents, consider yourselves warned: Brock Motum, one of the most improved players in the nation last season, looks even better this season. Motum accompanied Ken Bone to Pac-12 Media Day in San Francisco on Thursday but the plaudits for the Cougar senior post have been coming out of Pullman all offseason -- long before Motum and Bone ever got on the plane.

The cupboard isn't completely bare for Washington State, not with Pac-12 leading scorer Brock Motum returning for his senior year.
But the Cougars have few other returning players with experience.
Guard Davonte Lacy is the only other starter back, and only Mike Ladd and D.J. Shelton saw any significant playing time last season.
Coach Ken Bone sees the lack of experience as...
Even despite its win at Washington State, Colorado is still regarded as the weakest team in the Pac-12. That makes a strong showing for Stanford's struggling offense all the more important in Boulder.
WASHINGTON STATE'S struggles this football season can be attributed to a variety of factors, but a look at the roster suggests a glaring one: Lack of production from the 2009 recruiting class. That group's shortcomings are especially notable, because as third- and fourth-year seniors they should be serving as the backbone of this year's team.

PULLMAN – Washington State might not lead any individual receiving statistical categories in the Pac-12, but they can now boast the best backup wide receiver in the nation. After not starting last week’s 24-17 loss to Stanford, most assumed Marquess Wilson would earn his way back into the starting lineup. Mike Leach indicated otherwise after Wednesday’s two-and-a-half hour practice.
WASHINGTON STATE IS right in the mix of things for a junior college offensive lineman who verbally committed to an SEC school earlier this year -- but in his own words, he now considers himself a soft verbal to that school. The mammoth offensive guard prospect with a Wazzu offer told CF.C he has an official visit date set to the Palouse, a great relationship with the Cougar coaching staff and...
