ERNIE KENT said Monday if Washington State (4-0) topples mid-major Gonzaga in Pullman on Wednesday night (8 p.m., Fox Sports 1) it will be because of the momentum and confidence gained through stay-at-home scheduling in non conference play. There is, of course, a flip side to that coin.

The theory that beating up cupcakes at home helps a team in the long run does not seem to play out too well at UW over the last several seasons. GU has at least traditionally maintained the "anybody, anytime, anywhere" philosophy since Fitz, but we might be moving away from that a bit, partly because we have some credibility as a program built up over the last 16 years, and can negotiate better schedules where we can play some tougher schools at home.

You only get better by playing opponents that are as good or better than you are.

They're pretty good. I hope we keep playing them 2-1 doesn't seem so bad since it's 1-1 and 1 in the arena ( hardly a home team advantage for us). 4 games for them got them experience with a new group, tuned u for plays and simply playing together.
We need this game this year to get some work in. Outside of UW, we didn't look too shape getting away with 1 L and 1 W. kids ned to play together and refine thir dynmaic.
I'm looking forward to a W but the team dos need time and games playing together.

This year's schedule provides far fewer true away games outside of conference.

Not to mention the rest of the WCC...

Love how the author insisted on taking the old standard "Mid-major" dig on GU in the first sentence.
