Video: WSU’s Ken Bone at Pac-12 Tourney












Here’s video (above) of Washington State Ken Bone before the Cougars warmup Wednesday at the MGM Grand Arena.

No. 11 seed Washington State faces No. 6 Washington at 8:30 Wednesday in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament.

Bone had no significant news to report other than senior guard Mike Ladd chipped earlier in the day during a workout. Unfortunately, Ladd has been bitten by the injury bug during his WSU career.

Bone said playing your rival in a loser-go-home format adds a little more spice to things.

The Cougars (13-18) have won their past two games and when asked if WSU has playing its best basketball, Bone didn’t necessarily agree.

“During the course of the year, too many times panicked,” he said. “We literally panicked at certain times of the game.”

It seems Bone was referring to WSU’s inability to win close games. Ten of the Cougars losses have been by seven points or less. WSU has lost five games by two points or less.

It’s odd the Cougars have difficult finishing games when they have the luxury of relying on high-scoring senior forward Brock Motum.

However, Bone noted: “Maybe (he’s) helped us stay in games, but at the end of the day I believe you better have a guard or two out there that really knows the system. What to run. When to run it. Which direction to run it and all of the intangibles of the guys that have the ball in their hands.”
