As much as WSU did right Thursday night, it’s hard to believe the Cougars lost. But they did, throwing away a lead that was 18 points with 11 minutes and 43 seconds left. But from that point until Jeremy Green hit his fifth 3-pointer, giving Stanford a 53-52 lead, WSU scored eight points over 9 minutes and none from the 7:24 mark to the 1:49 mark. And that was that. The one stat that stands out as we head downstairs: Despite trailing much of the game, Stanford had an eight-point edge at the free-throw line. We’ll be back in about 90 minutes.
