Cougs down Wolfpack in secret scrimmage
Foremost, the Cougs defeated the 'Pack 66-58 in an empty Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum.
WSU was paced by the play of its guards, as juniors Royce Woolridge, DaVonte Lacy and Dexter Kernich-Drew led the way.
Que Johnson, the touted shooter coming off a foot injury, played only about 15 minutes and appeared to be shaking loose some rust. He returned to full practice participation with the Cougs about 10 days ago.
The Cougars are rolling out a new, high-pressure defense this season and it looked "pretty good" against the Wolfpack, according to the source with knowledge of the day's proceedings.
"Secret" scrimmages such as this have become routine in college basketball in recent years. The Cougars played Montana in this way in each of the previous four seasons.
WSU will formally start the season this Friday, in Beasley, in an exhibition game against Central Washington. The regular season will begin Nov. 8, also at Beasley, against Cal State Bakersfield.
