NCAA Basketball: Washington State at Arizona State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Washington State got back into the win column on Sunday with a 91-83 win against Arizona State. Impressively, the Cougars picked up the win on the road in Tempe, a place the Cougars don’t win often.

Josh Hawkinson led the way for WSU, pouring in 31 points, a new career-high. Oddly enough, another Cougar set a career high in scoring the last time the Cougars won at Arizona State. That leads us into trivia for the week.

Q1: Who was WSU’s leading scorer the last time the Cougars beat Arizona State on the road?

Q2: Who led WSU in scoring the last time the Cougars scored at least 90 points against the Sun Devils.

Q3: The date of the game for question No. 2 happened to be senior day for WSU. Name the three WSU seniors being celebrated that day.
