Weber State on tap tonight

Forgotten among all the hoopla of the LSU win on Wednesday is the fact we have another game this evening with Weber State. The game is the final tuneup before the opening of the Pac Ten season in Los Angeles next weekend.

The two teams have one common opponent in Southern Utah who beat the Wildcats by 12 earlier this month. The Huskies on the other hand had no problem with Southern Utah. This one could be over very early if Washington shows up with the same intensity, and game plan it had against LSU. Things are clicking for Washington who are finally utilizing their big men on offense.

Randy Rahe takes over as the new head coach of the Wildcats. Rahe accepted the position last March. Rahe comes to WSU from the University of Utah where he was an assistant for the past two seasons under Coach Ray Giacoletti.

The Wildcats are coming off back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1989-90/1990-91. ... WSU was 10-17 last season and 4-10 in Big Sky Conference play. The ‘Cats tied for 7th in the league standings with Idaho State. They failed to make the Big Sky Conference Post-Season Tournament for the first time since 1980-81 and for only the second time in the 30-year history of the event.
