Looking to be an exciting match up.

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

Good morning, Coug fans! Today at noon on WSU live stream, our Washington State Cougars women’s basketball takes on UCLA at home. This isn’t our first time going up against UCLA this season, although today I’m hoping for a better result.

Last time, the final score was 68-66, UCLA. A well fought game for sure, as it went into overtime. Here are some reminders:

Michaela Onyenwere put up 14 points and 15 rebounds. She’s a senior forward, and has pretty consistent numbers. Luckily 3-pointers are not her specialty, she’s made 8 total this season.

UCLA is pretty well spread out in terms of scoring, but they did lean on sophomore guard Charisma Osborne, who put up 28 points against us.

Osborne and Onyenwere were the two with the most playing time, 43 and 40 minutes respecfully.

Lauryn Miller, another senior forward, is also someone to keep an eye on. She’s got a slight rebound advantage, but only put up 2 points against us last time. I’m hoping she doesn’t come back for more.

Natalie Chou is another one to watch out for- against us specifically she put up 15 points. While that isn’t directly intimidating, UCLA rounds out their points so that most of their players put up at least that.

In the last game, we outshot UCLA- our field goal percentage was 40.9% compared to their 31.4%. The game boiled down to fouls- they shot more than us, with a better percentage (78.3% versus 46.2%). This game needs to be about focus, assuming it’s going to be half the fight last game was.

All in all, we’ve been here before. But I’m hoping the home court advantage and a good nights sleep will do us a few more favors than last time. Stream the game today at noon on WSU Livestream!
