PULLMAN, Wash. — The Washington State Cougars are headed to the Big Apple.

The WSU men’s basketball team just beat the BYU Cougars in the quarterfinals of the National Invitation Tournament on Wednesday. Now, the team is headed to New York to play Texas A&M in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.

The Cougars had a send-off celebration on campus, getting farewells from fans and the WSU football and cheer team.

Currently, the WSU men’s team is the only college team in the Northwest still left in tournament play.

If they beat Texas A&M, the Cougars go on to either play Xavier or St. Bonaventure in the NIT Championship!
