Washington State vs. Stanford Score: Cougars Hang Tough With Cardinal In First Half

The Cougars were led by Faisal Aden and his 10 points.

The Washington State Cougars have struggled in the early going of conference play but have a chance to pick up a big win at home on Thursday night against the Stanford Cardinal. After a half of play, the Cougars trail 29-27. WSU shot pretty well from the field, hitting 44.8% of their attempts, but were 3-for-14 from behind the arc. The team also missed their two free throw attempts.

Faisal Aden led the way with 10 points and carried his team at times. DaVonte Lacy and Reggie Moore both added five each, while Marcus Capers was limited with foul trouble.

Dynamic forward Josh Owens had his way in the first half and ended with 10 points and six rebounds. Chasson Randle has six points, while John Gage and Dwight Powell combined for eight points off the bench.

The second half is about to get underway. A win over the Cardinal would be huge for the Cougars and would deliver a serious blow to Stanford's chances at a March Madness bid.
