History was made in the 2007-08 season when the Cougars earned a berth to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year, marking the first time WSU reached the NCAA Tournament in consecutive seasons. In addition, WSU advanced to the Sweet 16 for the first time in program history.
The Cougars return five letterwinners including two starters (Aron Baynes & Taylor Rochestie) from that Sweet 16 team and welcome seven newcomers, all freshmen. The 2008-09 squad has a total of nine freshmen factoring in redshirt freshmen Charlie Enquist and Abe Lodwick.
