Kyle Smith emphasizes Washington State's goal to improve defensively in conversation with Andy Katz
Dec 12, 2019
Washington State men's basketball head coach Kyle Smith spoke with Pac-12 Conference's Andy Katz about the goals and expectations that he has set in his first year with the program. A common factor in Smith's vision of Cougar basketball is turning the program around on the defensive end of the floor: "I don't think you can really compete until we're consistently better there." Washington State is currently 5-4 on the year and begins Pac-12 play on January 2, 2020 with a home matchup against USC.
