Poll: Which team will have the best season among the in-state programs?

Washington State senior guard Tia Presley In the words of Washington State senior G Tia Presley, “the exhibition was such a tease.” More than a week has passed since most teams held an exhibition game, a positive because the NCAA has allowed teams more practice time overall, which should produce better competition. But, as always, players…

Tuesday dribble: Washington hits road, Seattle U heads to KeyArena and WNBA draft lottery set

HuskiesLogoPac-12 pride brimmed at Washington practice last week. While the Huskies enjoyed a Thanksgiving holiday without basketball due to a scheduling conflict, the conference was busy knocking down teams ranked in the AP top 25.

“They’re genuinely excited,” said Washington coach Mike Neighbors of his team’s reaction to the conference going 4-2 against ranked teams the past week after an 0-7 start. “They see that you have to make the most of your opportunities when you play a ranked team.”

UW’s first chance is Saturday when it plays at No. 23 Texas A&M (4-2). Washington plays at Houston (3-4) on Wednesday. Naturally, the Huskies (1-2) would like to sweep to flex its Pac-12 muscle like its rivals.

Washington State (4-4) made 12 three-pointers to defeat then-No. 10 Nebraska 76-72 on Saturday. Playing before 5,933 fans, it was the Cornhuskers’ first loss in its sparkling new Pinnacle Bank Arena. It was the Cougs’ first win over a Top 10 team in program history.

“A lot of our girls had never played in an arena this loud, so for us to keep our composure and poise when they came back on us showed that we can hang with some of the top teams,” WSU junior G Tia Presley told reporters in Lincoln, Neb. She scored 13 of her 17 points in the second half, none from three-point range.

Washington State, Seattle University get big wins at home Saturday

It’s early, but Washington State and Seattle University collected significant wins to give reason the schools may be headed toward positive seasons despite a rough start.

WSU defeated BYU 67-52 at home on Saturday. The Cougs held their visitors to 27.5 percent shooting and outrebounded them 54-40. BYU (3-3) was picked to win the West Coast Conference, edging eight-time champion Gonzaga (6-1) by one point in the preseason coaches’ poll.

Cougs freshman G Lia Galdeira led her team with 15 points while sophomore PG Tia Presley added 12 points with a career-high seven assists. WSU (2-3) plays two road games next week at UC Riverside (3-2) on Wednesday and Fresno State (2-1) on Friday.

At the Connolly Center, Seattle University was jumping for joy at center court after battling for a 74-70 win against Sacred Heart in its Thanksgiving Tournament. It’s the first time SU has won the title since coach Joan Bonvicini formed the holiday event in 2010.
