The Washington State men’s basketball lost by 32 points on Sunday, falling to 81-49 to Colorado. Unfortunately, blowout losses are an all too familiar result for Cougar fans. The loss on Sunday was the eighth loss of at least 30 points since the start of the 2013-14 season.

While we could focus on only blowout losses for trivia this week, we’ll instead mix it up and include some blowout wins as well.

Q3: Who was WSU’s leading scorer in the game for question No. 2?
