One of the coolest things I think about a big tournament, especially a conference tournament, is the team playing in the next game sitting behind the basket, iPods in hand, watching the current game. The Washington State players strolled into Staples Center and its small rooting section went crazy.
Meanwhile, Anthony Goods may have put this game away with a 3-pointer for a 58-52 lead with 1:30 left. We do not have running stats at the press table, but from the scoreboard, Goods has 22 points. A senior, Goods has been inconsistent in his career, although he is at his best tonight.
