Lou Henson, the basketball coach who led Illinois back into the national spotlight, has died at age 88.
The game’s final pass went deep beyond the defensive pressure to CJ Elleby, all alone in the frontcourt with but a few unimpeded steps between himself and the ritualistic exclamation-point dunk.
Elleby fired in a game-high 20 points after a slow start, and WSU (5-4) collected a nonconference win against the Aggies (5-5) in its annual trip to Spokane.
WSU picks up back-to-back wins for the first time season, taking down New Mexico State by a 63-54 final on Saturday afternoon in Spokane.

Will Rodgers III took questions after Washington State’s 58-7 victory Saturday over New Mexico State and lamented that the defense hadn’t fully done its part. As in, the defense hadn’t posted a shutout.
It wasn’t a great litmus test for anyone trying to get a gauge on the 2019 Washington State football team, but Saturday’s 58-7 win over New Mexico State was an ideal starting point, if nothing else, and gave the Cougars a chance to look at a few of the young players buried on their depth chart for some extended periods of time late in the game.
There was plenty of hype and hoopla around Washington State’s wide receiving corps this offseason. Sophomore running back Max Borghi drew an expected amount of preseason praise. The offensive line, most believed, could be superb once again despite losing an All-American left tackle.
All in all, it’s pretty good being Washington State these days, and not just because the scoreboard read 58-7 in the Cougars’ favor on Saturday night.
Difference makers from Washington State’s 58-7 win over New Mexico State at Martin Stadium in Pullman
Anthony Gordon’s performance, strong second-half defense and getting Max Borghi the football stood out in the Cougars’ win over the Aggies
Running back Max Borghi began his sophomore season on Saturday by doing something rather rare in the Air Raid era of the Washington State football program: He ran for more than 100 yards.
Gordon also started the game 15-of-15 passing before Brandon Arconado dropped a pass in traffic late in the second quarter for Gordon’s first incompletion of the game.
Two Spokane-area Cougars players made their first career starts on Saturday against New Mexico State, and it didn’t take long for one of them to make a splash at Martin Stadium.
Why Washington State will beat New Mexico State Saturday night at Martin Stadium.
Saturday night, Anthony Gordon provided an answer to the only question that remained about the Cougars’ offense.

The Cougars had 10 different receivers catch a pass; Dezmon Patton had 103 receiving yards and a touchdown. WSU improves to 14-1 over its last 15 home games. – Pac-12 Networks
The Cougars are 31 1/2-point favorites against the Aggies and the betting line probably won’t drop when they host Northern Colorado of the FCS Big Sky Conference a week from now. Perhaps that’s why Leach believes he won’t have a true gauge on his team’s identity until after the first “few games.”
The keys to a potential victory for Washington State against New Mexico State Saturday at Martin Stadium.
Chase Holbrook’s tenure at Washington State as an offensive quality control assistant didn’t last longer than 365 days. In other words, plenty of time to cultivate a few classic Mike Leach stories.
