Cougars’ Lacy nears return from rib injury

PULLMAN – The Washington State offense has struggled in conference play but help could be on the way. According to coach Ken Bone, DaVonte Lacy, WSU’s leading scorer at 17.7 could be back from his rib injury in time for the Cougars’ game against Washington on Saturday. Lacy has played in just one of WSU’s eight conference games, and for only 11 minutes. After missing the conference opener against Arizona while recovering from an appendectomy, Lacy returned to play against Arizona State but injured his ribs in the first half.

Cougars’ offense still basket case

PULLMAN – Coach Ken Bone and the Washington State men’s basketball team spent 15 minutes talking in the locker room after Sunday’s 71-44 loss to Oregon. They talked about staying focused in spite of a seven-game stretch that has produced just one win, about preparing for Saturday’s game against Washington, and about how UO (14-5, 2-5 Pac-12) is better than its record.

Washington State takes on free-falling Ducks

The Washington State men’s basketball team has struggled in the early part of Pac-12 play, but has a chance to collect a win today against Oregon, a program in flux. The Cougars have lost six of their last seven games while the Ducks come to Pullman riding a five-game losing streak. During coach Dana Altman’s four years the Ducks have found success with players who transferred from another school, and were able to quickly join with the players already on the roster to form a cohesive unit. But despite talented players such as UNLV’s Mike Moser and Houston’s Joseph Young joining the team, this year’s squad has struggled in Pac-12 play, particularly defensively.

Rule adjustment

PULLMAN – Enjoy Junior Longrus’ final two and a half seasons while you can. The 6-foot-7 Washington State forward is a nuanced style of basketball player that appears to be going the way of milk trucks and the dodo bird. Undersized forwards have been mainstays in the Pac-12, with guys like Jeff Varem, Sam Clancy, Jamal Williams and others who used deft body positioning and superior quickness to make up for their lack of prototypical height.

Nelson helps Oregon St drop Washington St

PULLMAN – D.J. Shelton’s first 3-point attempt hit the rim, the top of the backboard, and in the words of coach Ken Bone, “maybe the flag,” before falling into the basket. His next three were never in doubt. But not even Shelton’s sweet shooting was enough to prop up the Washington State offense as the Cougars fell 66-55 to Oregon State in a Pac-12 men’s basketball game in front of 2,632 fans at home Wednesday night.

Cougars put away suitcases

PULLMAN – Last week the Washington State men’s basketball team put together 40 minutes of impressive basketball, considering the opposition. Shame they weren’t all in the same game.
