This will be one of the most significant senior days I have ever experienced, because of the unique closeness of this team. #special day

Long-time basketball fans have seen a good chunk of college basketball history pass through the Roundhouse: Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, Ralph Miller, Dave Stallworth, NCAA Tournament games (including UTEP in 1966 and Houston in 1968), Danny Manning, Xavier McDaniel, Hersey Hawkins, Henry Iba, the 1981 McDonald’s Classic (Jordan scored 30) and on.
None of those moments will pass today’s game, should the Shockers win and complete the regular season 31-0. It’s a pretty big day if they lose, as well, but you probably don’t want to contemplate that possibility.
- Cleanthony Early leads WSU’s list of transfer scorers.
- Kadeem Coleby happy to trade playing time for 30 wins.
- Shocker parents follow their sons from afar.
- WSU’s Canadians helped each other.
- Bob Lutz: Shocker success starts with point guards.
- And there’s a team on the other side, hoping to spoil the party. Most years, the Bears are a pretty good story, playing through debilitating injuries. Coach Paul Lusk has done an admirable job keeping MSU on the right track. Today, however, the Bears are here to play one role.
