WSU, UA knotted at halftime


After all that, Josh Fogg's 22 footer at the halftime buzzer ties it at 35. The Cougars struggled against the UA pressure, unable to initiate their offense in their comfort zone. Starting 35 feet from the basket contributed to their 10 first-half turnovers, all but two in the first 9 minutes. WSU kept switiching defenses, and it seemed to bother the Wildcats, who hit just 4 of their first 12 shots. But, after the under-12 minute media timeout, the Wildcats started attacking the offensive glass, pulling down four boards and scoring after each. That helped them cut a 10-point WSU lead to nothing. In fact, on back-to-back dunks by Derrick Williams, UA took a 27-25 lead. The Cougars shot 54 percent in the first half, but took eight less shots than Arizona. We'll be back when we can. Feel free to talk among yourselves.
