Cougs Drop Game To UTEP

Posted:

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Vince Hunter scored 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting as four players scored in double figures to help UTEP beat Washington State 64-51 on Saturday night.

Julian Washburn chipped in 15 and McKenzie Moore added 13 points and hit two 3-pointers for UTEP (7-5), who shot 51 percent from the field and ended Washington State's three-game win streak.

Solid defense by the Miners held Washington State to only 17 first-half points. UTEP pulled to quick 12-point lead and led 41-22 at 14:50 mark before Washington State started to chip away. The Cougars cut the lead to eight (59-51) with 2 minutes to play in the game, but got no closer.

Que Johnson scored 19 of his career-high 21 points in the second half and hit four 3-pointers during the run to help dig the Cougars out of their hole.

Washington State shot only 33 percent from the field on 20-of-50 shooting.
