DKD!

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Led by a career night from senior Dexter Kernich-Drew, the WSU men's basketball team picked up its fifth Pac-12 win on Friday with a 74-71 win against Arizona State.

Kernich-Drew had a break out game last week when he scored 18 points against Oregon. He easily topped that on Friday, scoring 27 points on 9-of-12 shooting. The strong effort helped the Cougars erase a five-point halftime deficit and control the second half. Only DKD and DaVonte Lacy scored more than nine points for the Cougars. Arizona State is far from a top team in the conference, but the Sun Devils are coming off a win against No. 7 Arizona.

DKD was huge for the Cougars early in the second half and went on to score 15 of his 27 points in the final 20 minutes. The Cougars led by eight points in the final minutes and while they didn't close the game as smooth as possible, it will still good enough to come away with their fifth Pac-12 victory of the season.
