In the past, Washington State hasn’t always had the size, the length and the athleticism to combat the Pac-12’s elite big men, but this season the Cougars should at least be 2-for-3 there.
The Cougars will play eight true home games at Beasley Coliseum – including an exhibition –but 11 total in the state of Washington, with a road game against Seattle U at Key Arena on Nov. 14 and neutral-site games against Montana State at the Toyota Center in Kennewick on Dec. 9 and against Santa Clara at Spokane Arena on Dec. 29.

As a junior, Franks’ numbers ballooned and the Vancouver, Washington, native posted the Pac-12’s seventh-best scoring average at 17.4 points per game – from 6.4 ppg as a sophomore – and nearly doubled his rebounding average, with 6.3 boards per game.

Ernie Kent took the first steps toward rebuilding his Washington State basketball roster on Wednesday, signing small forward Aljaz ‘Jaz’ Kunc out of Impact Basketball Academy and junior college transfer Isaiah Wade, a power forward who most recently played at Iowa Western Community College.
