WSU leads 42-30 at half


The Cougars are wearing their gray uniforms tonight, a color usually reserved for the road team – in baseball at least. And WSU is shooting as if it's on the road, and for the Cougars this year, that's a good thing. As we documented in our story this morning, for some weird reason WSU has shot markedly better from long range on the road. Well, tonight the Cougars have hit half of their 14 3-point attempts. Klay Thompson (3 of 6 from 3) leads with 13 points, but Faisal Aden (2 of 3) is right behind with 12 – and three fouls. Reggie Moore has nine points and five assists. WSU's biggest problem is turnovers (eight) and a lack of aggressiveness at times. The Beavers seemed to be figuring out WSU's defense – after starting in a 2-3 zone, the Cougars switched to man with about 13 minutes left and stayed with it – late in the half and scored the half's final six points. That helped cut WSU's once 19-point lead (41-22) to the 12-point halftime edge. More afterward.
