WSU leads by 14 at the half


Did that seem like a quick half to you? The Cougars came out on fire and built a 25-5 lead, which is their biggest in a Pac-10 game this year. The Ducks battled back and cut the lead to 12 at one point. But it's halftime and WSU leads 29-15. The Ducks are shooting 5 of 22 from the floor, with the Cougars over .500 at 12 of 23. Klay Thompson has hit 6 of 10 shots and has 15 points. Taylor Rochestie has eight more, so that tells you the Cougar scoring isn't spread out. By the way, Aron Baynes has yet to score. Freshman Drew Wiley, who had WSU on his short list last year, is keeping Oregon in it with eight points. By the way, Kyle Weaver is on Bud Nameck's halftime show. We'll be back at the end. Till then.
