WSU loses, 74-62


COUGARS

Patience is never a strong suit of the young and it certainly wasn't Saturday afternoon for WSU. UCLA's matchup zone demanded patience and accurate shooting and the Cougars had neither, though the former may have led to the latter. Even when WSU showed patience in the second half, ball movement was lacking. And Klay Thompson wasn't there to bail them out. Or, more accurately, his shot wasn't there. The sophomore, the Pac-10's leading scorer, the nation's sixth-leading scorer, a 45.8 percent shooter, struggled all day, finishing 5 of 17, including 2 of 9 beyond the arc. He had 13 points, a little more than half his average. Reggie Moore led the way with 24 points. WSU shot 35.6 for the game, but it seemed like than that. We'll be back in a coupl hours.
