WSU upsets UCLA, 82-81


It's been since 2004. And that was the only time ever. When Washington State won in Pauley. The first year of Dick Bennett's coaching tenure the Cougars took a 55-48 win back to Pullman. Now they have two, but it wasn't easy. Riding the clutch play of Taylor Rochestie, the Cougars upset the 20th-ranked Bruins to salvage their fading postseason hopes. Rochestie had 33, Klay Thompson, who came out on fire, had 15 and WSU won despite losing Aron Baynes to fouls after scoring 13 points. We'll be back in a couple hours with the game story.
