WSU defeats UA, 69-53


The looks were there in the first half, the ball just didn’t go in. Call it the curse of the east basket. The Cougars made them in the second – on the west side. And, because they shot the lights out (68 percent in the second half at the west basket), WSU earned its seventh Pac-10 win Thursday, but only its third at home. The Cougars, who trailed by as many as 11 in the first half, built a lead of 17 points and held off the Cats down the stretch. This was a game WSU’s 4s, the power forwards, dominated offensively. Caleb Forrest hit a career-high nine free throws and scored 15 points. DeAngelo Casto added a career-high 11 points, four coming on layups from the high post in which he went to the hole uncontested. Taylor Rochestie and Klay Thompson combined for 33. We’ll be back in a couple hours with the game story.
