Where are they now: Akognon lighting it up for CSF

Posted by Jeff Nusser on November 19, 2007

During the Cougs’ spectacular run to the NCAA Tournament last season, one thought kept creeping through the minds of die-hard fans.

Imagine if we still had Josh Akognon.

Once upon a time, Akognon was WSU’s most potent offensive weapon under Dick Bennett, singlehandedly keeping the Cougs in a number of games, and essentially winning a contest against the Huskies by himself back in 2006. Now, he’s doing the same thing for Cal State-Fullerton.

“Bennett ball” proved to be a bad fit for the no-conscience shooter (at least in his eyes), but he’s finding CSF to his liking. He’s averaging 25.3 points while shooting 51 percent — 47.4 percent from 3-point range.

It’s not like we don’t already have a pretty crowded guard rotation, but still … what if?

Harris found dead in Brazil

Posted by Jeff Nusser on November 19, 2007

In what is the worst possible ending to a most bizarre story, officials found what they believe to be the body of former WSU basketball player Tony Harris yesterday in Brazil.

There will be tests to confirm his identity, but based on physical description and clothing, police believe it’s Harris. A sad day for all.
