Final Stats

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Washington State women's basketball team played its final road game of the 2008-09 regular season, falling 76-35 to Arizona State Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena. The Cougars dropped to 11-17 on the season and 4-13 in the Pacific-10 Conference, while the Sun Devils improved to 22-6 overall and 13-3 in conference play.

"Today just wasn't our day," WSU Head Coach June Daugherty said. "It's disappointing. We played really well in our victory at Arizona, and we didn't carry that into tonight's game."

Freshman guard April Cook was the only Cougar in double figures, scoring 13 points. The scoring output marked her 21st double-digit scoring effort this season. She has scored 10-plus in eight consecutive games, tied for the third-longest streak by a WSU freshman in NCAA history.

WSU kept it close for the first four minutes, but from that point on it was all Sun Devils. ASU was able to build as much as a 22-point lead in the first half, going 14-of-31 from the floor (45.2 percent). At the other end the Cougars shot just 27.3 percent in the first half (6-of-22). WSU's freshmen scored 15 of the team's 17 first-half points, and the Cougars entered halftime down 37-17.

The Cougars shot a little better in the second half, hitting 9-of-26 shots (34.6 percent), but they were unable to overcome the first-half deficit.

Led by Cook's 13 points, WSU freshmen scored 33 of the team's 35 points. Jazmine Perkins and Danielle LeNoir each scored seven points, and Jessica Oestreicher chipped in six.

Freshman forward Lexie Pettersen pulled down six rebounds to lead the Cougars.

Senior guard Katie Appleton started her 108th career game tonight, more than any other Cougar in NCAA history. Appleton's 113 career games ranks tied for second on WSU's all-time list.

The Cougars will close out their regular season with Senior Night against Washington Friday. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Friel Court, and the game will be televised by FSN Northwest.
