I remember last week OKD said he would be convinced the slump is over when Lauri gets 12 points. He only needs one more to get 12.
Slump over? Lauri already has 11 points (3-4 FGs, 4-4 FTs), three rebounds and an assist.
Markkanen throws it down. He's already in double-digit points.
There have been four lead changes so far tonight.
Trier has two points, two rebounds and two assists.
Markkanen leads in scoring with seven points. PJC has six points and is 2 for 2 from the field.
At the media timeout, Wazzu leads 25-24 with 6:47 left in the half.
Markkanen hits both his free throws and he's got seven points now.
Washington State seems fired up tonight. Gotta respect the intensity.
That rebound by Markkanen was impressive and athletic. Then Chance hits the jumper for two.
Franks hits the 3 for Wazzu. Cougars lead 21-17
Alkins and Markkanen lead the Wildcats in scoring with five points apiece.
Arizona calls a timeout here. Wazzu leads 18-17 with 10:10 left in the first half.
Make that 18-17 after Rawle's 3-pointer.
PJC tries to go inside but turns the ball over. Then Flynn hits a trey on the other end.
Ristic with the clean face. He looks like a baby!
Believe it or not, Arizona only has one total assist so far tonight.
Markkanen leads the Cats in scoring with five points. He's 2 for 3 from the field so far.
At the media timeout, Washington State leads 15-14 with 11:22 left in the first half.
