Cougfan at 15: Unsung Thomas Kelati

THOMAS KELATI changed everything. The Bennett Ball Era at Washington State will be forever defined by Kyle Weaver, Derrick Low and the rest of the gang that advanced to the Sweet 16 in March of 2008. But a key player in helping the Bennetts get the program off the ground with his leadership and calm under fire was one they inherited.

Kelati helped get these Cougs where they are

KELVIN SAMPSON, then the coach at Washington State, was on sports radio back in March 1994 talking about WSU's first Big Dance invitation since George Raveling was on campus a decade earlier. What struck me about the interview was that Sampson kept talking about Reco Rowe, Terrence Lewis and Bennie Seltzer. Great Cougars all -- but they weren't on the team Sampson was taking to the Dance.
