A spectacular and historic college basketball season has nearly ended here in the Inland Northwest. Washington State and Gonzaga spent much of the season in the Top 25, meaning my Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and some Sundays were spent watching basketball games. I figure I covered 25 Top 25 games this year. That's a lot of tight deadlines.
Gonzaga lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament, and Washington State lost to North Carolina in the Sweet 16. This weekend I'm helping out at the women's NCAA regional finals in Spokane, meaning three more games and my season is officially over.
There are worse assignments than top college basketball. Like, virtually everything. But I do look forward to covering some news for awhile.
All that basketball was good for some things. I am currently ranked third in my NCAA pool, and still have a chance to win. Go Bruins.
