Washington State women's basketball had yet to win a conference tournament game as a program until last year, when the Cougars upset sixth-seeded Oregon State in first round of the Pac-12 Women's Basketball Tournament in March.
And then the Cougars did it again the next night, shocking third-seeded USC to advance to Staples Center and the Pac-12 semifinals. While the road ended there with a hard-fought loss to Cal, June Daugherty's team was eager to get back at it soon thereafter.
We've been talking about basketball for a while now. With marquee coaches, a slew of returning vets and two of the country's top-three freshman classes, can you blame us?

Tuesday Tape Room is Pac-12 Networks football analyst (and former USC assistant coach) Yogi Roth’s chance to break down tape in search of details worth focusing on — similar to what’s happening in team meetings throughout the conference today.
This is the week that Pac-12 fans have circled all spring and summer.
This is the week that Chip Kelly and Lane Kiffin have tried to avoid talking about all season.
This is the week that matches up old school pro-style football against the new age up-tempo spread scheme.
Yes, it’s Oregon at USC. Finally.
During the Pac-12 Football Media Day in July, we caught up with Arizona State linebacker Brandon Magee, an aspiring sports broadcaster once his playing days are over.
Now, you too can open your own sports bar.
OK, maybe it won't have actual customers, tables and food and drink, but thanks to Pac-12 Now, fans have the ability to watch multiple Pac-12 contests literally in the palm of their hands.
With the release of the iPhone and iPod Touch app earlier this month, accessing mutliple streams is even more readily available. All seven Pac-12 Networks are available through the apps, meaning fans can watch different regional networks simuletaneously on different devices or browse them freely on one at a time.
As fast as the Oregon Ducks are as a team, they don't have a monopoly on quicks in the beaver state. At the Oregon Twilight track meet last spring, Oregon State's Markus Wheaton was seven-hundredths of a second faster than Oregon's De'Anthony Thomas in the 100-meter dash.
But don't forget about Brandin Cooks, who made a case for being one of the fastest dudes in the conference with this 54-yard touchdown reception on Saturday.
The Oregon Ducks just can’t get any computer love. Despite dropping 70 on Colorado and Florida losing to Georgia, Oregon remains at No. 4 as a result of Notre Dame’s win over Oklahoma. However, thanks to a tough remaining schedule that includes games against USC, Stanford and Oregon State, the Ducks still have a very good shot of surpassing two of the three teams in front of them should they win out.
Utah kick returner Reggie Dunn ruined the Golden Bears' collective mood on Saturday -- twice.
Cal took a lead early in the first quarter after a 49-yard field goal from Vincenzo D'Amato, but Dunn quickly erased that deficit with a 100-yard return for a touchdown on the ensuing kickoff.
And then, after a rough, rough game, Cal finally found the end zone with an impressive Brendan Bigelow run to break a 28-0 Utah scoring spurt.
What do you think happened next?
After a touchdown was overturned by booth review, Washington found itself in a 4th and goal situation inside the Beaver 2-yard line. You couldn't blame Steve Sarkisian for taking the points with a field goal had he done so considering the nature of the game, but the Husky head man kept his offense out on the field to make a statement.
Mission accomplished: Bishop Sankey found paydirt on a quick snap to put Washington up 10-0 going into the break.
