WSU has 34-22 lead at half


Once again Washington State came roaring out of the locker room against Oregon. But this time the Ducks didn't quit. If anything, they came out playing harder when they fell behind 22-9. A 7-0 run keyed by Tajuan Porter cut the lead, but the Cougars regrouped. And guess what, it was the WSU defense that ignited a 10-0 spurt from WSU. In the stretch Washington State forced four turnovers and built a 16-point lead. Only some sloppy play and a 3-pointer by Porter (he has 11 points) as time ran out allowed Oregon to cut it to 12 and, for the first time this season, score more than 20 points in a first half. Aron Baynes leads WSU with 14 points, including a 15-foot jumper in the final minutes. We'll be back.
