THERE'S LONG BEEN the argument that the highest postseason honors are reserved for the players on the teams with the best win-loss records, and not necessarily for the best players themselves.

THIS SPRING WILL mark a broadcasting milestone at Washington State. Only two years ago some WSU football games weren’t even on TV. Now, not only will every WSU game again be televised for the second year in a row, the Washington State spring game will be on television for the first time.

Brock Motum entered the career top five on Saturday, nudging by Mark Hendrickson into fifth and joining old teammate Klay Thompson, who finished his WSU career at No. 3 on the all-time list behind Isaac Fontaine and Steve Puidokas.
