The Cougars' game on Sunday against UCLA was a good example of how WSU has fared in conference play. WSU played better than many probably expected and went toe-to-toe on the road at UCLA for 40 minutes. The Cougars, however, were outmanned and couldn't close the game. Close, but not quite enough to come away with the win.
Like all season, it was DaVonte Lacy and Josh Hawkinson leading the way. Lacy scored 19 points, giving him 1,506 for his WSU career, No. 6 all-time in school history. With at least three games to play, he has a very good chance to move into the top five. Hawkinson finished with 21 points and 14 rebounds, setting the WSU record for double-doubles in a season. He also topped 300 rebounds, not something many Cougars have done. Which leads us into the trivia for this week.
Q1: Name the last five Cougars -- in correct order -- to join the 1,000 point club. There are 33 members of that club so we're looking for the 33rd to join, the 32nd, the 31st, and so on in reverse order.
Q2: Hawkinson became just the fourth WSU player to grab 300 rebounds in a single season. Who are the other three?
