D.J. Shelton will get his shot

D.J. Shelton's willingness to rebound and ability to hit the occasional 3-pointer made him a valuable player for Washington State during his three years in Pullman. While the Cougars did not find much success while Shelton was in school, he still has a chance to be remembered among a select group of former players who found success in the pros.

While Shelton went unselected in last week's NBA draft, he will have a shot to impress professional teams while playing for Atlanta in the NBA summer league. The league's regular season runs from July 11-15 with playoffs running from July 16-21. If you have NBA TV, or sign up here for $15, you can likely watch Shelton play alongside fellow Atlanta rookie Adreian Payne, who the Hawks made the 15th pick in the draft after watching him score 41 points against Delaware in Spokane.

Men’s basketball: WSU 80, SFSU 50

From Albuquerque — The Washington State men's basketball team cruised to an 80-50 win over San Francisco State on Wednesday in an, ahem, neutral arena. Kennewick was once again kind to the Cougars, who won by the largest margin since the last time they headed to the Tri-Cities a season ago and beat Idaho State, 74-39. Stop me if you've heard this before but DaVonte Lacy once again led all scorers, putting up 22 points in the rout. The Cougars got a good game out of D.J. Shelton who finished with 9 points and 11 rebounds.

Also encouraging was the 10 points scored by Royce Woolridge, his fourth time in double figures in the last five games.

It wasn't immediately a romp, however, as SFSU led, 16-15, with 8:48 left in the first half. But the Cougars raced out to a 43-31 halftime lead and never looked back.

Follow the jump for the box score.

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — It's about to be a busy week, but for now, we take a minimalist approach with our Pac-12 links. Because there aren't very many of them.
