Monday morning trivia - Gonzaga edition

With football season a wrap, the weekly trivia changes sports.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Unlike last season when a bowl game allowed football season to drag into late December, the attention on WSU athletics is shifting a bit earlier this season. With that, the focus of the weekly trivia will also go from football to basketball and with the Cougars taking on Gonzaga this week, that seems like a decent place to start.

Q1: The WSU individual record for points in a game against Gonzaga is 42, held by two players. Who are they?

Q2: WSU scored 91 points against UT San Antonio. When was the last time the Cougars topped the 100-point mark (year and opponent)?

Football:

WSU denies Houston report that Leach interested in UH job - SportsLink - Spokesman.com - Dec. 7, 2014
Houston reporter David Nuño set the Washington State Twittersphere ablaze with the above tweet, saying that Cougars coach Mike Leach could be interested in the vacant position at the University of Houston. WSU officials doused the flames with a tweet of their own.

Moos says WSU football "still in the process" of building - Spokesman.com - Dec. 7, 2014
Every year Moos has the option of rolling over a year in Leach’s contract so that it remains at five years. Doing so resets the buyout either party would have to pay in the event that they choose to terminate the agreement. Moos has exercised the rollover provision after every season since Leach came to WSU and intends to do so again this year.

Men's basketball:
