The Cougs performance was marked by a consistently strong, aggressive defense, and a sporatic but patient offense. Despite lackluster performance at the foul line, WSU grappled its way from behind to defeat the Zags, as a vocal WSU crowd gave its enthusiastic support. 

It was the first time in nearly a decade that Beasley has been sold out for a basketball game.

The Cougars men’s team will return to Beasley on Dec. 16 to face off against Cal State Northridge, followed by Jan. 4 against Arizona State and Jan. 6 agains Arizona.
