Washington State Cougar Women Gain Famous Country Star as Fan
If you can't guess from the lyrics, the song the team loved too much this season was Man! I Feel Like A Woman! by Shania Twain.
It turns out that Shania Twain noticed the team singing the song and is now a huge fan, cheering the team on social media. Will we actually see Shania at a Cougar basketball game in the future?
Will Shania Twain be at the NCAA March Madness Tournament?
There has been no official word if Shania will be cheering on her new favorite basketball team at the NCAA tournament but it would not surprise me one bit.
I am sure the Washington State Cougar Women's basketball team has already reached out to their famous fan and offered her a seat right behind the bench. If they haven't, they need to get on that!
Heck, you might even see her on the bench because the girls now consider her to be an integral part of the team makeup for 2023!
Good luck girls, now go win your first-ever NCAA Championship!
