While Washington State was occupied in a close loss to Washington on Sunday, former Cougar great Klay Thompson was busy scoring 39 points for the Golden State Warriors. That's not even his season high. Thompson's scoring exploits got me to thinking about the best scorers in WSU history which naturally led to the latest trivia question.
For the question below, we're looking for overall points, not points per game. Since seasons overlap, we're calling the 1990-91 season the start of the decade and the 1999-2000 the end. The 2000/01-2009/10 seasons would be the next decade.
