WSU basketball: posts need to step up

Josh Hawkinson has been Washington State's best basketball player in 2014 and continued his strong play yesterday.

The 6-foot-10 forward scored 16 points and collected 10 rebounds for his third double-double of the season.

Hawkinson played 33 minutes in WSU's 77-71 loss to Idaho on Wednesday. All of WSU's other posts combined to total just 35 minutes, and that's including 13 minutes from Brett Boese, who is a guard that's playing wing in a post's body.

Apart from the sophomore from Shoreline the Cougars are getting very little out of their big men and it's causing problems for the rest of the team.

Read on after the jump.

WSU wins, can still finish fourth

Washington State beat Rice, 76-74, behind 27 points from sophomore forward Josh Hawkinson.

The Cougars will play at 2 p.m. on Saturday against Missouri State in the 4th play/6th place game of the Great Alaskan Shootout. After WSU (2-3) couldn't get anything fall in a 71-43 loss to UC Santa Barbara on Thursday, the Cougars' shooting numbers against the Owls were their best of the season.

We have box scores and notes from the game after the jump.

Unloading the quote book: Ernie Kent wins first as WSU coach

It wasn't pretty, but Washington State men's basketball coach doesn't expect many wins to come in that fashion in his first year at the helm in Pullman. 

Friday night's 80-68 win over Idaho State at Beasley Coliseum showed as much. 

I unload my quote book from Kent and players after the jump. 

Big man commits to WSU hoops

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — There are multiple reports now confirming the verbal commitment of Shorewood High School forward Josh Hawkinson to Washington State, including this one from Braulio Perez of Cougfan.com.

According to that story, Hawkinson, a 6-foot-9, 230-pounder, will play power forward at WSU. According to Scout.com, Hawkinson also holds offers from Santa Clara and San Diego.

He averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds per game last season as a junior.

Hawkinson joins point guard Ikenna Iroegbu as the second player to commit to WSU for the class of 2013.
