The home losing streak to UCLA is now at 19. Similar to last year, WSU lead for a large portion of the game, but UCLA came charging late and the Cougars couldn't hold on. Turnovers and missed shots late ultimately cost WSU, just as Craig pointed out in his recap yesterday. One thing that stands out to me in the official stats is the second half free throw disparity. WSU shot two free throws in the second half while UCLA shot 16, ouch.
UCLA's women's basketball team made it a clean sweep, beating WSU 73-52. The WSU women's team has now lost seven of their last eight games after a promising 3-0 start in conference play.
