Washington State's men's basketball team had a very bad Sunday. Hopefully you already knew that, otherwise learning the Cougs lost 88-47 is a terrible way to start your Monday.

The Cougars have lost a lot of games this year, many in blowout fashion, but this was the first of nearly historic levels. The 41-point loss was WSU's worst since the 2004-05 Cougars lost 81-29 to Oklahoma State. While we still digest the latest blowout, let's see how well you can remember that game in Stillwater.

Q1: The Cougars went more than nine minutes before finally scoring a basket against Oklahoma State. Which player scored the first points for WSU?

Q2: Only two Cougars scored five or more points in that game. Who where they?

Q3: Who was the opposing coach?
