New, 11 comments
James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Football season is officially in the books and with the start of Pac-12 play, it's time to shift the CougCenter Monday Morning trivia questions from the gridiron to the basketball court.

The Cougars are off to a 1-2 start in conference play despite the best efforts from Josh Hawkinson who is once again posting impressive numbers. Hawkinson is averaging 17.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. Those are numbers rarely seen by WSU big men. With that in mind, let's see how well you remember the last big men to put up similar numbers.

Q1: Hawkinson is well on the way to averaging a double-double for the second straight season. Who was the last WSU player before Hawkinson to average a double double?

Q2: Hawkinson averaged 10.8 rebounds per game last season but could join a rare group if he keeps up his current pace. Name the four WSU players to average at least 11.0 rebounds per game for an entire season.
