Three hours before Midnight Mayhem Friday, the Washington State University men's basketball team took to the hardwood in its newly redesigned practice gym for its first official practice of the 2011-12 season. The squad has a slightly different look with the departures of two starters, Klay Thompson and DeAngelo Casto, whom each left a year early to pursue professional basketball careers. However, third-year head coach Ken Bone and his staff had their squad, along with three returning starters, focused and ready for the new season. Check out some more photos from the first practice, along with the photo gallery linked to this blog post.

Five members of the Washington State University men's basketball team served as greeters for the YMCA's annual fundraiser, 'Keys to Success'. The event featured Chopstix, a dueling piano group out of Seattle, along with a silent auction and live dessert auction. Senior Charlie Enquist, junior Brock Motum, sophomore Royce Woolridge and freshmen Dominic Ballard and DaVonte Lacy were in on the action, greeting attendees at the door and assisting them to their tables. This event was just one of several the Cougar Men's Basketball team has been involved with, as it has participated in Habitat for Humanity, held camps and a free kids' clinic, participated in Lentil Festival and visited the senior center, among other activities.
