WSU blows out Oregon, 67-38


Is there any better way to start a game against a team that’s lost 11 consecutive conference games than with a 19-2 lead? From that point, 10 minutes, 29 seconds into the game, the only thing to wonder about was the final score. Of course, there were some interesting moments until that score was decided, but there was little danger WSU would throw the lead away. The Cougars were led by a defense that blanketed the Ducks, forcing them into 17 percent shooting from the floor 28 minutes into the game – Oregon hit just 1 of its first 12 second-half shots. Offensively, Klay Thompson supplied the outside shooting with 23 points while Taylor Rochestie added 16. The much-needed win moves WSU to 13-11 overall and 5-7 in the Pac-10. We’ll be back in about 90 minutes with the game story. Till then.
