Bone wins a big one

I know this isn’t a Husky basketball item. But with Ken Bone now at WSU, I figure there’s at least a certain level of interest on here in the early going in how he puts his team together.
And Bone won a big one last night when he convinced point guard Xavier Thames to stick with his original letter-of-intent and come to Washington State.
Scout.com has the story, though it’s one of their premium stories you have to pay for. But in essence, Bone and assistant Ben Johnson met with Thames at his home in California this week and convinced him to reaffirm to the Cougars. His stock has been rising and it was thought schools like Arizona and maybe even UCLA would make a run at him if he were able to get out of his signed LOI.
Anyway, keeping the highly-touted PG in the fold figures to have a big impact on the Husky-Cougar rivalry the next few years and on Bone’s coaching career in Pullman.
