UW coach Lorenzo Romar said Wednesday he wasn't surprised that Washington State defeated Gonzaga, 77-67, Tuesday in Pullman.
"(WSU) beat us twice last year," he said. "We know what Washington State is capable of doing. I think UCLA is probably the best defensive team in our league. I think after that, Washington State is up there pretty close."
He added that Gonzaga's loss shouldn't detract from the UW game nor make the Bulldogs any more focused than they already would have been.
