March 6, 1999

PULLMAN, Wash. – Tricia Lamb, who paced the Washington State women with 442 points and set a record for three-point field goals in a single season, was named to the Pacific-10 Conference first team Friday by the league's 10 coaches.

Lamb, who averaged 16.4 points to rank second in the conference, is the first Cougar chosen to the all-league first team since Jade Hyett in 1997 and the sixth pick since the Pac-10 began women's league play in 1986-87.

Lamb ended the season with four treys against Washington Saturday to push her season total to 69, one more than Joanna Smith made during the 1997 season. Her 442 points places her twelfth on the school's single-season list

In two years Lamb has downed 99 treys to rank fifth on WSU's career list. She is just the third Cougar to score over 700 points in her first two seasons – 707. The other two are Jeanne Eggart-Helfer and Angie Miller.

Lamb finished the season hitting 37.5 percent of her 184 three-point attempts to rank among the top five in the Pac-10. Her 69 treys topped the league and her school record eight treys against Arizona tied her for third in the nation, going into this weekend's action.
