Your Tuesday night WAC game scores

Western Oregon, Lewis and Clark and Northwest Nazarene. No, we are not talking about geographical or historical reference points but Tuesday night WAC opponents.

That's why we have to lead with Louisiana Tech's 99-94 victory over Houston and in Texas. This one must have been great television. We wish we could take some credit because the very next game after we wondered about Magnum Rolle's points per game contribution this season, he scores 29 (13-15 shooting) and also grabs 10 rebounds. We're sure Kerry Rupp is fed-exing a consultant contract at this very moment to PTW but we caution he should first contact our agent's law office -- Dewey, Cheatum and Howe.

The Dogs shot 51% on the night and that enormously loud vacuuming sound you heard for about two hours earlier tonight was emanating Olu Ashaholu's hands -- he latched on to 21 boards in addition to 17 points. Oh yeah, Kyle Gibson ho-hummed another one with a measly 28 points.


Host Utah State nearly doubled the score -- 78 to 42 -- on the aforementioned Wolves of Western Oregon.


Boise State had no trouble with the incoming Crusaders of Northwest Nazarene of Nampa, Idaho, winning 76-58.


Idaho, obviously with no appreciation of history, sent Lewis and Clark packing, 71-52.


Now, on to the WAC slate finally so it can be determined -- on the court -- as to who are the contenders and who are the pretenders.
