Washington State has effectively rounded out its 2020 recruiting class, receiving a commitment Friday from Jefferson Koulibaly, a long and explosive point guard from Canada.
Bonton’s been key in helping create opportunities for his Washington State teammates and he’s one of just a few Cougars who can manufacture offense for himself. Which is why Bonton’s value to this WSU team may actually be best measured in the games he’s missed.
The Cougars may have to find alternative ways of manufacturing offense Wednesday night against Cal, but they expect to have Bonton back in the fold for the last home game of the regular season, on Sunday against Stanford, and for three final road games, at Washington, Arizona and Arizona State.

At some point before the season began, Kyle Smith took a break from designing plays for WSU’s basketball team and put his literary juices to work, penning a short victory poem for the Cougars. The lyrics sounded a little sweeter Sunday afternoon, and it’s no wonder why.
Game one between WSU (13-10, 4-6) and UW (12-11, 2-8) takes place at 3 p.m. Sunday (ESPNU) at Beasley Coliseum. The Cougars will put George Raveling’s name in the rafters during a halftime celebration for the Hall of Fame coach.
George Raveling’s name goes up in those same rafters on Sunday at halftime of the Cougars’ game with rival Washington, and as appropriate as Klay Thompson’s day of tribute was last month, this one’s an even better idea.
An Arizona team that hasn’t been as steady, or consistent, as many of its previous editions lost its national ranking after losing at Arizona State last Saturday. The Wildcats still displayed the strength, size and athleticism befitting a team that posted the country’s sixth-rated recruiting class in 2019.
Even as Washington State raced out to its largest lead of the game, the Cougars knew enough about Arizona State’s recent history to understand why it was important they not grow complacent. The Sun Devils nearly lured the Cougars into their trap anyway.
