Final Stats | Eastern Oregon-WSU Highlights

PULLMAN - Washington State University sophomore guard April Cook led a contingent of Cougars scoring in double figures, as the women's basketball team defeated Eastern Oregon 94-52 in the team's second and final exhibition contest at Friel Court, Sunday.

Cook scored 17 points, redshirt junior center Katie Madison and sophomore guard Jazmine Perkins each added 16 and freshman center Carly Noyes scored 12.

"This was a good, solid test for our team as we prepare for the regular season," WSU Head Coach June Daugherty said. "We definitely raised our level of execution. I thought we did a much better job of moving the basketball this week than we did against Lewis-Clark State."

WSU recorded 20 assists as a team, with four different players each recording three - Cook, Perkins, Noyes and freshman guard KiKi Moore. Perkins also added nine rebounds and five steals, both of which were game highs.

The Cougars led the entire way, but really turned on the defensive pressure in the second half. After allowing the Mountaineers to shoot 40 percent in the first half (10-of-25), Eastern Oregon went just 6-of-21 in the second half (28.6 percent). WSU also recorded 12 steals.

Offensively, the Cougars went 38-for-81 from the floor (46.9 percent), significantly improving their shooting percentage from the first exhibition game (30.4 percent). WSU also scored 20 second-chance points off of 26 offensive rebounds.

WSU outrebounded Eastern Oregon 56-23, and scored 54 points in the paint.

"Two freshmen started today, and we're still trying to figure out our line-up," Daugherty said. "But I think KiKi Moore and Ireti Amojo responded well as starters. Carly Noyes came in when Katie Madison got in early foul trouble, and she also responded well. This is a very, very good sign for our squad, especially for the front line, but it was a total team effort."

Amojo scored nine points and pulled down eight rebounds

The Cougars open their season Sunday, Nov. 15 at home against UC Davis. Tip-off against the Aggies is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Friel Court.
