The Washington State University Cougar men's hoop team got off to their expected fast start with an easy 89-49 exhibition victory over outmatched Lewis-Clark State at Beasley Coliseum in Pullman.

For the game, Wazzu shot 60% as a team.
Wazzu was never threatened in the game as they took a 46-29 into the locker room at halftime and extended it with their hot shooting in the second half.
Wazzu had four players reaching double figures and was led in scoring by Aden with 22 points, followed by Thompson with 21, Casto with 18 and Brock Motum with 11. Thompson and true freshman Dre Winston, Jr. shared the rebounding lead with seven boards apiece.
