WVC’s Ward focused on winning

Aaron Ward was named as the Freshman of the Year for the Northwest Athletic Conference East Region last season, during which he averaged 15.1 points and 10.8 rebounds per game for the Wenatchee Valley College men’s basketball team.

Simone good fit with Arizona State

PULLMAN — For a year Jordan Simone stood in the stands watching the Sun Devils play like any regular student, trying to convince those around him that, yes, he actually was a member of the team.

Bruins in control of Pac-12 South

PULLMAN — Everyone but Colorado has a shot to win the Pac-12 South, but only UCLA doesn’t need help along the way.

Gonzaga roughs up ranked opponent

SPOKANE — Gonzaga dismantled another opponent, and this outcome will raise some eyebrows across the college basketball landscape.

Cougars crushed by Horned Frogs

FORT WORTH, Texas — Hit ’em first is the saying the Horned Frogs like to use, but with just 20 wins in their first two seasons under coach Trent Johnson, TCU isn’t usually the team landing the first punch.

Washington optimistic about freshmen receivers

SEATTLE — For a passing game that has struggled mightily at times this season — “painful” was the word coach Chris Petersen used to describe it the other day — the Huskies are at least hopeful about the future of two freshmen wide receivers.

Mora, Petersen headed in different directions

PULLMAN — Jim Mora’s “business trip” to Seattle last weekend was an undeniable success. The UCLA coach returned to the city where he grew up, where he played college football at the University of Washington and coached the Seahawks and left with a 44-30 win over the Huskies.

Falk provides hope for Cougars’ future

At one point, during a timeout, Luke Falk invaded a defensive circle on the sideline and patted shoulders, lending encouragement. Then he ducked over to a bench where offensive teammates were sitting and slapped a few shoulder pads there, too.

Huskies hope backcourt can lead them to NCAAs

SEATTLE — Nigel Williams-Goss seriously considered the NBA. He put time and thought into calling his college career good after one season at Washington and seeing if his game was ready for the professional level.

Kent brings new attitude to Pullman to revive WSU

PULLMAN — The fact Ernie Kent is even at Washington State means that he has a tall task ahead of him to make the Cougars a competitive team. If the team hadn’t sunk to a level where it barely reached double-digit wins, then his old friend, athletic director Bill Moos, would never have come calling, and Kent would still be watching WSU games as an analyst for the Pac-12 networks.

Knights volleyball swept by East leaders

WENATCHEE — Even though the Wenatchee Valley College volleyball team lost Saturday to Northwest Athletic Conference East Region-leading Blue Mountain, the Knights still had somewhat of a successful weekend.
