WSU leads 44-31 at half


Sorry this is late but ... anyhow, Klay Thompson is putting on a clinic, rising above 6-foot-3 Zach Plackemeier to hit 10-of-12 shots and score 22 first-half points. At one point Thompson had 15 of WSU's 22 points. The WSU single-game record is 45 by Brian Quinnett. Delivez Yearby has 11 shots for IPFW, but has hit just three, thanks to the defense of Abe Lodwick and DeAngelo Casto. We'll be back with our story later.

UPDATE: Thompson finishes with a career-high 37 in 28 minutes as WSU earned a 89-70 victory.
