Final Stats

FREEPORT, Bahamas - Washington State freshmen Salena Dickerson and Katie Calderwood each scored in double figures against North Carolina State Friday at St. George's Gym, but the Cougars fell to the Wolfpack 77-51 in the opening round of the Junkanoo Jam.

Though WSU nearly matched the scoring output of North Carolina State in the second half, scoring 30 points to the Wolfpack's 31, it was unable to overcome a 46-21 first half deficit. The Cougars dropped to 1-3 on the season, while North Carolina State, a team receiving votes in both the Coaches' and AP polls, improved to 5-1.

Dickerson led the Cougars with a career-high 15 points, her first game in double figures. Calderwood added 10 points, eight of which came in the second half, to notch her first career double-digit scoring effort. The Wolfpack's Khadijah Whittington led all scorers with 25 points and added 11 rebounds to notch her sixth double-double in as many games.

Freshman Jasmine Williams pulled down a career-high six rebounds to lead the Cougars, while sophomore Colleen Betteridge tied her season high with four assists and junior center Heather Molzen had a season-high two blocks.

Junior Brynn Bemis, playing in her first game since the 2005-06 season, registered career highs in points (seven) and rebounds (four). Bemis hit her first field goal attempt, a 3-pointer, and each of her rebounds came on the offensive end.

In a match up of teams featuring two coaches with a combined 1,027 wins, June Daugherty's Cougars wore pink shoe laces to honor North Carolina State Head Coach Kay Yow, who is a survivor of breast cancer.

WSU will face Alabama in the second round of the Junkanoo Jam, Saturday at 10:00 a.m. (PT). The Crimson Tide (0-4) fell to Eastern Michigan in their opening-round game 52-43.
