COLLEGE BASKETBALL: JAN 29 Women’s Stanford at Washington State

Good morning, Coug fans! Last night our Washington State men’s basketball team had a pretty good game. Ah who am I kidding, nothing has me waking up in brighter spirits than a landslide against Cal! I’m hoping the momentum will carry over onto the women today, who play Colorado today at noon! It’ll be livestreamed.

Once again, we have played Colorado before. Let’s stroll down memory lane for a moment.

If you’ll recall: WSU outshot Colorado’s field goals by 23% (we shot 51.1% in that game). We also outperformed on 3-pointers and rebounds.

However, Colorado had the better free throw percentage by a large margin.

Frida Formann, the freshman guard, put up 14 points, right behind Jaylyn Sherrod, a sophomore guard, who put up 17. Formann was 1-11 for 3-pointers, and it seems like almost no one on Colorado’s team is consistently performing in terms of 3s. Zuzanna Kulinska went 2-2 on 3s.

Colorado’s largest lead against us was an intimidating 4 points.

I should stop being vaguely shady- Colorado did recently beat USC, which we did not, so I wouldn’t count on this being an easy win.

I’m expecting a better performance from Formann in terms of 3s, she had a decent time against USC. Mya Hollingshed also had a great game- the senior forward was 7-12 on field goals, and put up 18 points.

Peanut Tuitele is another one to keep an eye on- she had 11 points and 12 rebounds.

To wrap it up: we beat them by 13 last time, they beat USC by 10, USC beat us by 10, and my head is spinning.

The game will be livestreamed at noon today (link)! Which is four hours after the time this is up, if you read it right at 8am! Ideally with a morning coffee. I hope everyone has a great weekend, Go Cougs!

The Washington State University baseball team’s 2020 season ended far short of completion, so it’s unfair for anyone to glean too much from the 16 games WSU played.
