Yep, put on the tap shoes, Grandma, because the Washington State Cougars are headed to the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row.
And wow, you saw tonight that when this team can score, it is absolutely dominant.
While I WHIFFED on the margin of victory, we DID see the start of some really, really nice cross screens from our post players up high. And, not surprisingly, we saw some really nice lanes to the basket. We also saw some nice open looks from the perimeter as a result as well (isn't it amazing how Low looks when he can actually catch the ball facing the basket???)
And the stat line was proof with Weaver, Low, and Rochestie all above 15pts...
Overall, this team is now playing the way that it should play. And my sense is that the new offensive wrinkles will be firmly in place by the time that the Pac-10 tourney rolls around.
We're peaking at the right time folks, its simply a matter of avoiding the type of periodic brick fest that doomed us against Arizona.
It will be fun to see how this all plays out,
IN THE NCAA FRICKING TOURNEY!!!!!!
Congrats Seniors on Making History!
