  • Question For Shocker Historians

    When I was a young kid (maybe Cohen era?) I vaguely remember a game where WSU’s opponent finished a good part of the game with only 4 players on the court. I remember my dad being upset because WSU only won by 10 or 12 points or something yet are coach at the time was acting like he and the team accomplished something.


    I am am wondering because a friend of mine sent me a YouTube video of Alabama finishing a game with 3 players. I told him that WSU had once beat a team who finished the game with 4 players. Now I am wondering if my memory is correct.

    Cohen? Well it shouldn't be too difficult to find it by going through the 4 or 5 box scores where we actually won.
    Auf geht's Shockers, Shieß on tooor!
    Sheiß on tOOOOr ...
    Sheiß on toooOOOOoooor!

        I think there was a game versus Wyoming (maybe) back in the late 50s that the Shockers finished with four players. A great question for MK pre-game show.

          Remember it well. One of the few times that Coach Fogler admitted that he was wrong (not theoretically but in the implementation) in coaching.

          That was just crazy playing 5 on 4 for almost half the game, then 5-3 to end it. AND having the game in doubt.

            There was a video of it posted here a few years back. I saved it somewhere and will take a look when I get home.

            Sasha was involved because of course so.

                Not hard to envision Sasha in the mix. What's hard to believe is John Cooper involvement to the point he was reprimanded by the league. There have been a lot of good dudes go through our program over the years. Not many were better people than Coop.

                Would have loved to see what Coach Marshall could have done with Coop and Guff.

                  I remember yelling at the TV (unfortunately, I haven't out grown that phase of life) and thinking, "we're going to lose this freakin' game." I was 'puckering' and you could tell the team was doing the same.

                    AND Sasha! I had several problems with Folger, but how he did and did not use Sasha was at the top of my list.
