WSU women’s basketball knocks off Utah

WSU Athletic Communications

If you were somehow living under a rock on Sunday, there was a very big sporting event that drew the attention of countless onlookers. In the end, it was tightly contested game that featured a massive comeback down the stretch and a 6-point victory.

Of course, I’m talking about the WSU women’s basketball team’s 61-55 victory against Utah on Sunday.

What game were you watching?

WSU sophomore Alexys Swedlund did her best Tom Brady impression, scoring 10 points in the final 10 minutes. The Cougars seemed to be in control in the fourth quarter, leading by 13, but a Utah run almost erased the lead. Fortunately, WSU was able to rebound and hang on for a nice road win.

The Cougars are now 5-7 in Pac-12 play. Injuries and youth have been a challenge, but WSU has put some things together at times recently as it gears up for the Pac-12 Tournament.


(Apologies for the one-week hiatus of trivia, we’ll get back to it next week)
