Final Stats

PULLMAN, Wash. - Junior center Ebonee Coates recorded her second double-double of the season, but the Washington State women's basketball team fell 74-52 to No. 7 Stanford on Senior Day, Sunday at Friel Court. The Cougars conclude their regular season with an overall record of 5-24 and 2-16 in the Pacific-10 Conference. The Cardinal improved to 27-3 on the season and 16-2 in conference play.

Coates scored 14 points and pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds. Junior guard Katie Appleton led the Cougars in scoring for the 12th time this season, scoring 17 points.

"I think this game shows how much we have improved this season," WSU Head Coach June Daugherty said. "Stanford is a great program, but I am really proud of our players. Katie Appleton left it all on the floor, Ebonee Coates is playing great and I think Kezia Kelly has improved a great deal."

Stanford started the game on fire, hitting eight of its first 10 3-point attempts en route to an 18-point lead (32-14) at the 7 minute, 44 second mark. The Cardinal finished the opening stanza 8-of-12 (66.7 percent) from beyond the arc. The Cougars stayed with Stanford for the remainder of the half, outscoring the Cardinal 9-8 over the final seven-plus minutes.

Entering the second half with a 40-23 advantage, the Cardinal opened with a 13-3 run to extend its lead to 27. Stanford built its lead to as many as 31, but the Cougars outscored Stanford 18-9 over the final 7:50 to cut Stanford's winning margin to 22. WSU held the Cardinal to 3-of-10 shooting from the 3-point line in the second half.

With the 2007-08 regular season in the books, the Cougars travel to San Jose, Calif., for the Pac-10 Women's Basketball Tournament, March 7-10, at HP Pavilion.

"We're really excited about the Pac-10 Tournament," Daugherty said. "I know we have a chance to beat whoever we play in the first round. We are going to keep getting after it, and I know our players will be ready."
