The Washington State University Men’s Basketball Team is headed to the semifinals of the NIT following a victory over BYU inside Madison Square Garden Wednesday night.

In the Cougars vs. Cougars battle, WSU bested BYU 77-56 thanks in large part of Michael Flower’s game-high 27 point performance. Flowers also broke former WSU standout Klay Thompson’s single-season three-point record during the game.

The win propels WSU into the semifinals of the NIT for just the second time in program history. A complete game recap is available on the WSU Athletics’ website.
