Recap


Washington State allowed just four second-half field goals and notched a 66-42 win over visiting Western Oregon, the Cougars' fifth straight victory.

The Cougars (7-4) held the Division II Wolves to 26.1 percent shooting from the field and outscored them by 21 points in the second half.

Kris White scored 13 points for Western Oregon (9-2), which entered on a nine-game win streak.

Marcus Capers had a team-best nine points for Washington State, which used a strong defense to frustrate the Wolves into 4-of-23 shooting (17.4 percent) in the second half.

Washington State made nine 3-point baskets in a balanced offensive showing. Cougars leading scorer Faisal Aden returned from a three-game absence due to a concussion, and came off the bench to score seven points in 23 minutes.

The Cougars led just 28-25 at halftime but steadily pulled away. Mike Ladd’s 3-pointer gave Washington State a 40-30 lead less than five minutes into the half and the Cougars later ran off 11 consecutive points to take a 22-point lead with 5:33 remaining.

Cougars forward Abe Lodwick, a two-year starter who had been out with a foot injury, played 14 minutes off the bench in his first action of the season.
