No Cougs on TV this weekend

Jonesing to see some WSU men's basketball this week? Unless you're in the Bay Area, your only chance to view the Cougs' trip will be on the nightly news.

WSU won't be on TV again until its Jan. 22 game against Arizona. That means Coug fans will miss out on seeing games tonight against California and Saturday at Stanford, as well as next Thursday's home contest against Arizona State.

It's a bummer, too. Stanford's stature is quickly rising in the Pac-10. The Johnny Dawkins-coached Cardinal is 9-5, 2-1. Cal's not doing terribly well right now at 8-7, 1-2, but Jorge Gutierrez and Harper Kamp are solid players. I think both teams easily could catch WSU on an off night.
