Jackson State vs. Washington State: Motum takes over as Cougars down Tigers

USA TODAY Sports

Senior Brock Motum's offense and the Washington St. Cougar defense enough to keep Jackson St. winless on the season.

Washington St. Cougars senior Brock Motum continued his early tear as the Cougars beat the Jackson St. Tigers, 52-41, in Pullman Thursday night. Motum finished with 27 points and eight rebounds, his fifth straight game with at least 23 points.

Motum didn't get much help on offense, as no other Cougar scored over 11 points, but their defense shut down the Tigers, holding them to 22 percent shooting from the field. Washington St. also out rebounded the Tigers, 41-22. The win was the Cougars' fifth in their last six games after they lost three in a row in November. Not surprisingly, that win streak coincided with Motum's scoring streak. The senior forward is averaging 26.5 points in his last five games.

The loss moves Jackson St. to 0-7 on the season, all road games. The Tigers don't play a home game until Jan. 6 when they host Alcorn St. The Cougars play Buffalo in Seattle next weekend.
