(1090 The Fan) — DaVonte Lacy scored 22 points to lead Washington State to a comfortable 80-50 win over San Francisco State, Wednesday night for the team’s third straight win.
Lacy connected on three 3-pointers near the end of the first half to propel a Cougars’ 13-3 run to end the first half and put Washington State ahead 43-31. The run helped the Cougars overcome a sluggish first half that saw them trail the majority of the period.
Lacy finished 9-of-16 from the field, including 4-of-9 from 3-point range, while pulling down six rebounds. He had two big dunks which helped energize the Cougars offense in the first half. Junior guard Royce Woolridge added 10 points and forward D.J. Shelton had nine points and a team-high 11 rebounds.
The second half was all Washington State as they outscored the Gators 37-19. The victory came on a neutral site — Kennewick, WA — and was just the first matchup between the two squads since 1991. The San Francisco Gators (4-3) reside in the CCAA, a Division II school in a conference with the likes of Chico State and San Bernardino.
The Gators were led by Udon Osakue’s 11 points.
Washington State (6-4) faces UTEP, Saturday.
