Cougars Defeat Warriors 88-41 in Exhibition Action

Posted: Updated:

PULLMAN, Wash. – Freshman DaVonté Lacy scored a game-high 21 points in his Cougar debut as Washington State University men's basketball defeated Lewis-Clark State College, 88-41, in exhibition action Saturday night at Beasley Coliseum.

 

Also in his WSU debut, redshirt junior Mike Ladd scored 14 points on 4-for-6 from beyond the 3-point arc. He added three assists. Australians Brock Motum and Dexter Kernich-Drew scored 12 and eight points, respectively, as Kernich-Drew had a team-best five assists.

 

Washington State was playing without returning starters Abe Lodwick and Reggie Moore and senior Faisal Aden, who were out with injuries. Senior returning starter Marcus Capers led the team with seven rebounds, adding four assists and five points in 27 minutes.

 

Lewis-Clark State was led by Nick Fromm's eight points before fouling out in the second half. Spencer Drury and Darin Stewart each added six points.

 

Lacy was 5-for-6 from the field in the second half alone for 15 points, as the Cougars outscored the Warriors 47-26 in the second period. Sophomore Patrick Simon had six of his eight points in the second half as he was 2-for-3 from beyond the 3-point arc in the final 20 minutes.

 

The game was tied 8-8 at the first media timeout, until WSU used a 17-0 run, led by buckets from six different players, to take a 25-8 lead with 7:01 to go in the first half. The Warriors got just seven more points in the half, as the Cougars extended their lead to 26 at halftime, 41-15.

 

Motum led WSU with 10 points and three rebounds in the first half, while Ladd added eight. Capers was strong on the boards with six rebounds and five points, while freshmen Lacy and Kernich-Drew added six points apiece in the first 20 minutes.

 

The Cougars open the season Monday, Nov. 14 at No. 23 Gonzaga at 9 p.m. The game will be televised live on ESPN as the first game of the network's annual College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon.
