The game that was, CBI edition: WSU 61, Wyoming 41


FROM PULLMAN — Our game story is filed and we're back to wrap up WSU's 61-41 win over Wyoming in a CBI quarterfinal.

PLAYER OF THE GAME — Abe Lodwick deserves a nod for his career-high 16 points, but Brock Motum takes this honor once again. He scored 25 points on 9-16 shooting in 31 minutes and grabbed seven rebounds. DaVonte Lacy also earned praise from Ken Bone afterward for playing what Bone thought was his best defensive game of the season.

PLAY OF THE GAME — Larry Nance's two technicals with 4:49 remaining. The Cougars were already in control, but after Reggie Moore made three of four technical free throws and Brock Motum made two, the game was decided.

KEY STAT — WSU held the Cowboys to just 2-16 shooting from 3-point range, fighting through screens to get hands in the faces of UW's shooters.

QUOTABLE — “I don’t really know. This is the first time I’ve seen them all year. We played a good game and they really didn’t play as well as they’re capable of, because I’ve seen them on video beat UNLV and UNLV is extremely athletic. I think Wyoming’s better than they showed tonight. This is only the first time I’ve seen them, so I really don’t know.” — Bone, asked if Wyoming could have competed in the Pac-12 this season

NEXT UP — Wednesday at Oregon State (7 p.m., HDNet). The Beavers beat TCU 101-81 in a quarterfinal game tonight. It'll be the fourth matchup between the Cougars and Beavers. WSU leads the season series 2-1.
