Here's my UW basketball story from today's paper, on the progress of 7-foot sophomore center Joe Wolfinger.
Meanwhile, here is a note from News Tribune reporter Todd Milles, who covers WSU athletics:
With Washington State University students set to leave at the end of the week for Spring Break, men's basketball coach Tony Bennett said at one point last summer, he thought the game with Washington on Saturday afternoon would be moved to a new date.
Then he sort of put the topic on the back burner.
"(Bennett and the WSU administration) talked about playing this Wednesday ... but (the Huskies) were on their tour in Europe," Bennett said Tuesday during his weekly teleconference with reporters. "I think he would have been open to it."
WSU is riding a six-game winning streak against the Huskies, including an earlier 56-52 victory Jan. 5 in Seattle to open the Pacific-10 Conference season.
Bennett noted his school's administration will keep the dormitories open throughout the weekend in hopes of keeping students around. Fox Sports Northwest will televise the game Saturday with a 4:30 p.m. tipoff at Friel Court.
