GAME REPORT – Washington State 80, Washington 77.

PLAYER OF THE GAME –Washington State senior guard DaVonte Lacy, the former standout at Tacoma’s Curtis High, scored 25 points on Washington for the second straight game. He did last year in 72-49 loss at Alaska Airlines Arena. And he did it again Saturday while converting 8 of 17 field goals. He made all seven free throws, including six in the final minute.

TURNING POINT – Trailing 71-70, Washington had a chance to regain the lead. However, Andrew Andrews hurried an off-balance three-pointer that missed badly. At the other end, UW needed a stop. However, Mike Anderson lost track of Josh Hawkinson who slipped behind him and converted a layup despite being fouled. His ensuing free throw gave WSU a 74-70 lead with 45.2 seconds left.

QUOTABLE – “It’s all on me. As the head coach I have to make sure that we get this turned around. … This is my fault.” — coach Lorenzo Romar.
