Cougars Hold On to Defeat Stanford, 81-69
Jan. 19, 2012
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) -- Faisal Aden scored 33 points and Washington State beat Stanford 81-69 Thursday night.
The Cougars (10-8, 2-4) snapped a three-game losing streak and knocked the Cardinal (15-4, 5-2) out of first place in the conference on a night where hazardous weather kept the crowd at an announced 3,119.
Josh Owens scored 19 points to lead Stanford and Chasson Randle added 15.
The game was the Cougars' first in Pullman since a Dec. 18 win over Western Oregon. They played two games designated as "home" games in Spokane--against Pac-12 rivals Oregon State and Oregon--and one in Seattle.
It's the only meeting between the schools this season due to the expansion of the conference.
