Cats survive the Cougars in Pullman, 76-72

The Cats have been playing well by winning games, however they had to avoid another disastrous upset as they pulled away from the Washington State Cougars late in the game on Thursday night. The Cats would be closely followed by the Cougs for a majority of the game as the double-digit scoring efforts of Kyle Fogg, Solomon Hill, Jesse Perry, and Brendan Lavender were countered by a 21 point performance by Reggie Moore and a 28 point performance from the Pac 12's most improved player, Brock Motum. It took the enter game, but Jesse Perry would score two key buckets near the end of the game as the Cats hung on for a win in Pullman.
