Cougs prevail over Cardinal

By Tim Booth The Associated Press

There is a little life left in Washington State, thanks to a pair of electric freshman and a crafty senior.

Freshman Klay Thompson ignited the Cougars’ second-half rally. Senior Taylor Rochestie hit a running 10-footer with 17 seconds left. And freshman DeAngelo Casto stuffed Anthony Goods’ layup attempt with 7 seconds left as Washington State snapped a three-game losing streak with a 55-54 win over Stanford on Saturday night.

Down 11 late in the first half, Washington State (9-6, 1-2 Pac-10) charged into the lead early in the second half thanks to its energetic freshmen — Thompson and Casto — then rode the experience of Rochestie in the final minutes to win at home for the first time since Dec. 2. Rochestie finished with 21 points.

Lawrence Hill and Anthony Goods each scored 15 for Stanford (11-3, 1-3), but Goods’ last-second attempt from 30 feet fell short as time expired.
