WASHINGTON STATE TURNED in an offensive onslaught in the second half, as a tie game at the break warped to a 31-point crimson victory in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

was held scoreless in the first half on 0-5 shooting, eventually logging all 11 of his tally in the second half. Low was one of four Cougars in double digits on the day.
Kyle Weaver was the crimson star in the first half, crashing the boards and hitting from all over the court in a nip and tuck, back and forth game in the first half. He finished with 14 points.
The game -- incredibly in looking at the final margin of victory -- was tied at the break, 29-29. That's when the Cougs caught fire, outscoring the Eagles 42-11 over the final 20 minutes. WSU held Winthrop to just 11 points in the second and the crimson defense over the final 20 minutes on Winthrop's Taj McCullough served as a microcosm. He scored 15 points in the first, only two after the break.
We'll be back a little later with much more coverage on CF.C.
