Enjoy Your Parting Gifts, Husky Fans

Here are some parting gifts for enduring one of the worst games in basketball history. Whether you’re a downtrodden Husky fan or a joyous Cougar fan, you need to know that Helen Keller called and mentioned how freakin’ happy she was that she couldn’t witness what took place in Hec Edmundson Pavilion on Sunday night. That’s all. Let’s go.

*Editor’s note: Correction. Keller Morse Coded it to me. Obviously.

Parting Gift No. 1: The Most Egregious Call In The Entire World

If you watched the game, you know what call I’m talking about. The continuation and-one on DeAngelo Casto early in the second half. That call was so amazingly horrible that it managed to stand out from the usual crap we’re used to seeing from Pac-10 officials.

Yes, the Huskies played absolutely horrible. And no, they did not deserve to win that game. Similarly, that one call did not directly impact the outcome of the contest.

Because I Believe In The Sanctity Of The Interwebs And Stuff

Here’s an email exchange that needs to be shared. I’ve blocked out the personal data to protect the innocent. Just know that in sending Seattle Sportsnet an email, you’re opening yourself up for this sort of thing:

I found it hypacritical that you can make racial statement towards Faisal Aden liking him to somali blue diamond employees, but you find nothing wrong with news agencies protecting the identity of a player that has sexual contact with 16 year old girls. Can you see where I’m at?

Your Washington-Washington State SuperBlog

A live collection of timely thoughts on the Washington-Washington State basketball game.

7:02 p.m. – Kick off the game with an Ernesto sighting. He’s wearing a green tie, but you know he’s secretly rooting for Venoy. Kevin Calabro on the play-by-play. Sweet.

7:04 p.m. – “I think he’s gonna score 12 points on 7-for-38 shooting.” –my friend Jameson on Klay Thompson’s performance tonight. Do the math…

7:08 p.m. – That “No Means No” sign is clever…

7:09 p.m. – DeAngelo Casto with the first bucket for Wazzu. You know he’s coming back for his senior year…

Cougars In Disarray, Homis To Blame

What is homis?

DeAngelo Casto was arrested and cited for assault on Friday morning. Cougar fans are up in arms.

One Cougar fan provided this detailed, eyewitness depiction of the events leading up to Casto’s arrest:

“[Casto] tried to get into a party at a live-out up on B St. and the door duty would not let him in.  He started swinging at people and gave one of the guys a black eye with a sucker punch and was subsequently pushed down the stairs.  Casto then put the Fraternity presidents head into a wall, giving him a gash. They called the cops…Don’t shoot the messenger, this was an eye witness account from someone who lives at the house.”

In other news, Reggie Moore has started a rumor that he could transfer to Washington on his Twitter account. Cougar fans, once again, are up in arms.

Cougfan.com is providing this subscriber-only article on Reggie Moore’s use of the word “homis” (aka “homies”) in his tweets. Apparently, they’re still waiting on UrbanDictionary over there in Pullman. Grade-A premium content from the staff at the Cf.C.

Pwnd: Dawgs Dial Cougs’ Number In Blowout

I don’t know about you, but I have the urge to listen to a little Tommy Tutone right now.

Things we can take away from this game:

We’re still playing at home.

Let’s face it. Unless they decide to hold the entire NCAA Tournament at Hec Ed this year, we have zero chance of winning a national championship.

And yes, I realize that even talking about the Tourney at this point is out of the realm of our current state. Though you have to figure that if we land a high seed in the NIT or CBI and get home court throughout, we could at least win something.

Don’t laugh, it’s a distinct possibility. Let’s shoot for the dance, anyhow.

Was that game-planning we saw?

I believe it was.

You may have noticed the utilization of none other than the high post against Washington State’s 2-3 zone this afternoon. In spite of the fact that the Huskies don’t really possess a big man capable of playing in the high post, they were able to use Quincy Pondexter in that role successfully for the duration of the game.

Pondexter was able to do everything you’d expect of a high post player in the zone. He knocked down 15-footers from the line, penetrated and scored, drew fouls, kicked out, found cutters, and basically did it all. Textbook form from Quincy, and props to the coaching staff for having the wherewithal to attack the zone effectively.

Dawg Pack Dirt: Washington State

Volume 6, Issue 16, January 30, 2010

Special to Seattle Sportsnet

After witnessing the strangest game of basketball you’ll ever see on Tuesday, it’s time to get back to Pac-10 play against our fellow state university with the little man complex.

If we want any shot at the NCAA Tournament, we have to keep winning at home and pick up a few on the road in this last month, so bring that intensity we brought a little over a year ago when we beat WSU to become the Pac-10 Champions.

This edition of the Dawg Pack Dirt features several names of players’ girlfriends. This serves as a friendly reminder that yelling something along the lines of: “Hey (player), I saw your (girlfriend’s name) last night!” really never gets old. It’s just a funny and creepy way to get into a player’s head like nothing else can.

We’ve also got phone numbers for four players, including standouts Reggie Moore and DeAngelo Casto, so waste no time in blowing up their phones. Be sure to keep your comments classy and represent the Dawg Pack well, as always.
