Brock Motum had a double-double (11 points, 10 rebounds), Faisal Aden, who missed a bunch of shots in a row and was just 5 of 16 from the floor, finished with 12 points. ...

Anyhow, we have our story, which lays out how this came to pass over the past two weeks, and the reaction to the news from a trio of WSU players. ...
