Late 3 sinks Cougs’ hopes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Both parties insisted the final play set up as they wanted. Texas A&M wanted the ball in Elston Turner’s hands. And Washington State wanted to switch every screen and had no problem with 6-foot-10 forward D.J. Shelton winding up guarding Turner, whose team trailed by two points as he dribbled atop the key, about 25 feet from the basket as the clock ticked inside of 10 seconds Tuesday.

Cougars cruise past Utah Valley, but hard road awaits

PULLMAN – It was the kind of play afforded by a lead as large as Washington State’s. So maybe DaVonte Lacy cheated a bit defensively because the Cougars were already more than well on their way to their 72-49 victory over Utah Valley on Wednesday night. The sophomore guard used an effective overplay to steal the ball from an unsuspecting Wolverines ball-handler, dribbled back the other way with only one defender between he and teammate Mike Ladd, then flipped a soft lob to Ladd roughly rim-high.

Cougars’ signees lauded on, off court

PULLMAN – Ken Bone lauded their off-court talents as much as their basketball skills. But Bone also thinks the three players Washington State signed to national letters of intent on Wednesday are going to be pretty good on the court, too.

Cougars cruise to win over Utah Valley

PULLMAN – It was the kind of play afforded by a lead as large as Washington State’s. So maybe DaVonte Lacy cheated a bit defensively because the Cougars were already more than well on their way to their 72-49 victory over Utah Valley on Wednesday night. The sophomore guard used an effective overplay to steal the ball from an unsuspecting Wolverines ball-handler, dribbled back the other way with only one defender between he and teammate Mike Ladd, then flipped a soft lob to Ladd roughly rim-high. “I took a chance and gambled a little bit,” said Lacy, one of four WSU players in double-figure scoring with 11 points. “But I won.”

Cougars, Eagles will collide in opener

PULLMAN – DaVonte Lacy knows it’s coming. Eventually, opposing teams are going to pressure the heck out of Washington State’s guards, knowing the Cougars don’t have a proven ball-handler without dismissed former point guard Reggie Moore.

Cougs have work to do after exhibition win

PULLMAN – It wasn’t pretty. But these kinds of games rarely are, especially when a team like Washington State is trying to replace its starting point guard and four departed seniors.
