Cougar Women’s Basketball Receiving Votes In National Polls
PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State women’s basketball is receiving votes in both the Associated Press Top-25 and the USA Today Coaches Polls released this week.
The Cougars are coming off a season-opening weekend that saw them post a convincing 76-60 victory over No. 22 Dayton and a 84-34 win over Idaho State to start the season 2-0 for the first time since 2005-06. WSU received 10 votes in the AP poll and nine votes from coaches across in the country in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
Washington State received votes in the coaches poll towards the end of last season after beating four ranked teams throughout the season including No. 20 California at the Pac-12 Conference Tournament. It was the first time the Cougars received votes in a top-25 poll since midway through the 1991-92 season. WSU received votes on three different occasions that season following the 1990-91 campaign that saw the Cougars earn the program’s only trip to the NCAA Tournament.
The Cougars continue their season-opening four-game homestand Wednesday hosting No. 16 Nebraska. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. on the Pac-12 Networks.
