Cougs sign six

Washington State threw out a large net and landed six new women basketball players for next season.

The new class is focused on the backcourt with five guards, which is the strength of this year's team, which opens at Penn State on Friday.

The haul includes a pair of guards from Hawaii, 5-7 Dawnyella Awa from Lailua-Kona and 5-6 Emalia Galderia from Kamuela, two from California, 6-foot Mariah Cooks from Santa Maria and 5-9 Alex Williamson, from Chino Hills, and 5-11 Taylor Emondson from Carlsbad, N.M.

The lone forward is 6-1 Whitney Tinjum from Stacy Minnesota.
