It was an incredible week in Pullman.

Pullman girls and boys varsity basketball teams celebrated their senior nights at Pullman High School Tuesday night, WSU men’s basketball hosts UW in the Apple Cup. WSU women’s basketball plays two top 25 teams on the road.

The Evergreen has everything you need to prepare for the most important day in February: the Super Bowl–I mean Valentine’s Day–I mean let’s face it, it’s the Super Bowl but we’ve got articles about both so it is all good!

Brown’s 40 points propel Pullman boys basketball to dominate senior night win

Pullman point guard Jaedyn Brown shoots a free throw during a high school basketball game against Rogers, Feb. 7, 2023, in Pullman, Wash.

Both Pullman High’s girls and boys teams beat Rogers HS as the boys remained undefeated following a dominant 81-42 win.

Jaedyn Brown scored 40 points, every senior scored and Champ Powaukee made some plays you would expect to see in Beasley Coliseum rather than the Pullman HS gym.

Read the full Pullman boys basketball senior night recap here.

Cougs to play first game of the Apple Cup

WSU men’s basketball should be healthy and ready to host the other Washington school at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Beasley Coliseum.

The Cougs will welcome Noah Williams, their former teammate, back to Pullman. Williams transferring from crimson to purple is certainly one way to burn a bridge but the Cougs cannot be too focused on revenge, even good-natured revenge in which Williams is still viewed as a friend to the team.

WSU guard Noah Williams (24) jumps for a layup during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Oregon in Beasley Coliseum, March 5.

Be in Beasley.

WSU women’s basketball to aim high against two top-25 opponents

Every weekend is a challenge in the Pac-12. This weekend is no different for WSU women’s basketball who will face two top-25 teams on the road. The Cougs already have two ranked road wins but No. 25 Colorado and No. 7 Utah are exactly the teams the Cougs need to beat to go far in the Pac-12.
