Stanford Vs. Washington State, Final Score: Cougars Drop Card 81-69 Behind Faisal Aden's 33 Off The Bench

The Stanford Cardinal were hoping for another road victory this season against the Washington State Cougars, but instead ran into a buzzsaw as WSU trounced Stanford for a 81-69 victory at the Wallis Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum in Pullman.

Despite 19 and seven boards from Josh Owens, and 15 from Chasson Randle, the Cardinal (15-2, 5-2 Pac-12) simply couldn’t keep up offensively with the Cougars (10-8, 2-4 Pac-12) tonight. Stanford was outscored by 14 in the second half after taking a two point lead into the locker room. John Gage added nine off the bench, while Aaron Bright added eight and four assists.

Faisal Aden exploded off the bench tonight for Washington State, finishing with 33 points including a perfect 13-13 from the stripe in 29 minutes on the floor. Brock Motem added 16 while Reggie Moore added 13 and four assists.

The Cougs shot 52 percent from the floor, and 93 percent from the stripe, compared to only 40 and 68 percent for Stanford respectfully. Faisal Aden truly was the difference maker this evening.

Next up the Card head to Seattle to take on the Washington Huskies on Saturday.
