HOT COUGAR ACTION: Basketball Recaps

The Washington State men's and women's basketball teams opened Pac-12 play Thursday and they did so with two very different results.

The men's team was trounced by Oregon 92-75. The perfect combination of bad offense and horrid defense. If you are a glutton for punishment, you can find final stats here and post game notes here.

The women's team got off to a much better start in conference play, defeating Oregon 75-47. Four players scored in double figures including Rosetta Adzasu who scored 15 points on 6-6 shooting, also known as the anti-FAIDS. Full stats from the women's victory can be found here.
