Cougars extend Daugherty’s contract

College basketball: After leading the Washington State women’s team to the poststeason for the first time in 23 years, coach June Daugherty has received a contract extension through the 2018-19 season.

The Cougars finished 17-17 after losing to Montana in the first round of the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. Athletic director Bill Moos announced the extension Monday, but terms of the deal were not disclosed.

WSU posted the most wins since the 1995-96 season, including four over ranked opponents. The Cougars won nine conference games and had two players, guards Lia Galdeira and Spokane’s Tia Presley, named to the All-Pac-12 Team for the first time in program history.
