Strange bedfellows

Two years ago this month, the Huskies and Utah State met in San Diego in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
Today, they might meet in the lobby of the University Inn in Moscow, Idaho on their way out the door.
One of the unique aspects of the Palouse is that there are two universities within eight miles of each other. And sometimes, that means opponents bunking in the same house, as is the case here this weekend with the Huskies in town to play the Cougars and Utah State here to play Idaho a few hours later on Saturday night. Each is staying here at the University Inn, located across the street from the University of Idaho.
Also here is the Kent State baseball team, in town for a weekend series with the Cougars.
The Huskies got the better of the Aggies when the two met two years ago, a 75-61 win that helped lead UW to the Sweet 16.
But at 22-9 and second in the WAC, it’s the Aggies who may have more to brag about this March.
