A start that wasn’t unexpected

UCLA, 4-3

The game started just like we expected, with neither team scoring for more than 2 minutes. The Cougars had good looks, including two open jumpers for Daven Harmeling, who came in shooting better than 52 percent from the floor, but couldn't cash in.

In fact, they were 0 for 5 to start the game before Derrick Low, WSU's leading scorer at 15.5 points per game, was able to lose Aaron Afflalo and can a 3-pointer with 16:21 left in the half.

They also have been able to make UCLA play a halfcourt game because they haven't turned the ball over.
