WSU pulls away in the second half


Ernie Kent didn't stick around to see the end of WSU's 74-62 victory . He picked up two technicals within 2 minutes, 18 seconds from official Chris Rastatter and was ejected with 12:12 left. That was in the midst of a game-clinching 12-0 run. Later, the game was stopped for five minutes as the officials tried to figure out if Aron Baynes' shot to beat the shot clock was a 3-pointer, it was and the first of his career, whether it was before the clock should have expired, it was reset after a Taylor Rochestie 3-pointer. It shouldn't have been, but the shot still counted. Baynes had 19 points and 11 rebounds. All those things checked out and the game continued. That's also when Rochestie, who finished with a career-high 30 points, found the range from outside, hitting two key 3-pointers at the end of the shot clock to help WSU keep a double-digit lead. They kept it by hitting all 28 of their free throws. We'll be back in about 90 minutes with the game story.
