This Week In Cougar Athletics History
Washington State College scored consecutive victories over Washington at Pullman to complete a four-game season sweep of the Huskies.
Before a near capacity crowd of 5,300 at Bohler Gym, Washington State College bested UW 50-38 to open the series. Seven minutes into the game, the score was tied at seven but after that it was all WSC. The Cougars went into the break with a 27-18 advantage and were never threatened in the second half.
Paul Lindeman led the Cougars with 13 points.
The following day, the Cougars defeated Washington even more convincingly, 69-47, before 5,500 fans. WSC opened up a 15-point lead during the first 10 minutes and cruised the rest of the way.
Lindeman, Vern Butts, Marv Gilberg, and Ray Sundquist each scored 10 points to lead WSC.
The Cougars scored the most points in the history of the program en route to defeating Alaska-Anchorage 118-37.
Jeanne Eggart led WSU with 26 points on 13-of-20 shooting and added 11 assists. Janet Kusler also recorded a double-double of 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Cougars.
WSU led 60-20 at the half and then outscored Anchorage 58-17 over the final 20 minutes.
Jenni Ruff scored a school record 41 points in a 91-83 loss to California at Friel Court. Ruff eclipsed Jeanne Eggart's previous standard of 40 points set 15 years earlier. Ruff scored WSU's last 10 points of the game, including a pair of 3-pointers in the final 26 seconds.
Twice before, Ruff had challenged the record, finishing with 36 points against Boise State and Houston earlier in the season. Ruff would go on to score 685 points for the season, breaking Eggart's single-season scoring mark of 633 points. During the year, Ruff scored 20 or more points on 19 occasions.
