The Cougars enter their fourth year under Ethridge's direction. Washington State won a program record 11 Pac-12 games a season ago to finish in a tie for second in the league standings. The Cougars set the program record for the most single-season wins in the NCAA era with 19 victories en route to Washington State's second-straight NCAA Tournament appearance. WSU looks to make its third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance this season, as four of the team's five starters return to the fold for Coach Ethridge.
