PULLMAN, Wash. -- Junior Yvonne Volkman (Richland, Wash.) poured in 17 points and pulled down 14 rebounds to lead Washington State to a 73-59 win over Lokomotiva Bratislava of Slovakia in women's basketball action Thursday night.

Volkman was especially strong in the second half, scoring nine points and adding 10 boards to help the Cougars erase a 26-25 halftime deficit. "I'm a junior this year, one of the older people," Volkman said. "I need to step it up and one of way of doing that is scoring more points." The Cougars took the lead for good, 30-28 on junior Tricia Lamb's (Endicott, Wash.) three-point play with 19:03 left in the game. Lamb added a three-point field goal at the 18:33 mark to spark a 12-2 run that put WSU on top 39-30 with 16:32 left.

Lamb, a first team All-Pac-10 selection last season, finished with 12 points as did junior Victoria Harrod (Nepean, Ontario). "Defensively, we really looked strong," WSU first-year coach Jenny Przkewas said. "The majority of the game we played well and created scoring opportunities. Offensively, we just need to get more comfortable. We are running a new offense and there is a lot of hesitation." The Cougars open the regular season at Utah, Saturday, November 20 at 3 p.m. MST.
