COUGARS
Sweat Scores 30 as Kansas State Beats Washington State
      
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Ashley Sweat scored 30 points to help No.
22 Kansas State match the best start in school history with a 74-58
win over Washington State yesterday.

Marlies Gipson added 16 points and a season-best 13 rebounds for
the Wildcats, whose 11-0 record equals the mark set by the 1968-69
team.

Jazmine Perkins led Washington State (7-4) with 18 points.
Heather Molzen had her second double-double of the season with 13
points and a team-high 11 rebounds. Rosie Tarnowski and April Cook
each had 10 points for the Cougars.

Kansas State led by as many as 12 in the first half at 29-17,
but Washington State wouldn't back down as the Cougars closed the
half on a 13-4 run.

Leading only 53-51, Kansas State used an 8-0 run to put the game
away.

Washington State kicks off its Pac-10 season next Saturday
against Washington in Seattle.
     
HUSKIES
Brockman Leads Washington Past Montana 75-53

      
SEATTLE (AP) - Jon Brockman had 13 points and 11 rebounds for
his 49th career double-double to lead the Washington Huskies to a
75-53 victory over Montana yesterday for their sixth straight win.

Brockman, the team's leading scorer and rebounder, had his usual
steady performance despite being limited by a heavy bandage on his
nonshooting left hand. He needed three stitches after cutting his
thumb opening a Christmas present.

Isaiah Thomas also scored 13 points for Washington (8-3), which
played for the first time in eight days. Venoy Overton scored a
season-high 10 points while Matthew Bryan-Amaning also added 10 for
the Huskies.

Montana (6-7) was led by Anthony Johnson and Ryan Staudacher,
who had 11 points each. The Grizzlies lost their third game in a
row.
      
Kansas State Next For UW Women
SEATTLE (AP) - The Washington women's basketball team is off
until tomorrow, when the Huskies have a home game against Kansas
State.
