WSU AGAINST THE BIG 12
The Cougars are 6-14 all-time against the Big 12 Conference, and will be looking for their first win over a team from the league since Dec. 5, 1998, when WSU knocked off Colorado 87-76 in Pullman.
The Cougars' last road victory over a team from the Big 12 was Nov. 24, 1990, when they defeated Texas A&M 71-54. WSU is 3-10 against Big 12 teams all-time when playing away from Pullman.
LAST TIME OUT
Freshman guard KiKi Moore scored in double figures and tied the freshman record for steals in a game, but WSU dropped a 70-63 contest at Kansas State Friday night at Bramlage Coliseum. Moore scored a team-high 17 points for the second-straight game, added seven steals and recorded six assists. Sophomore guard April Cook scored 16 points, her 12th-consecutive game in double figures, and sophomore guard Jazmine Perkins just missed a double-double with 10 points and nine rebounds.
AMOJO DONE FOR THE YEAR
Freshman guard/forward Ireti Amojo suffered a knee injury during practice this last week, ending her debut season with the Cougars. In her only appearance of the regular season, Amojo scored seven points in 19 minutes against UC Davis.
Freshman guard KiKi Moore recorded seven steals in just her second game as a Cougar, tying WSU's NCAA freshman record. Only two Cougar freshmen have recorded as many steals in a single game: Jade Hyett (Oral Roberts; 1995) and current sophomore Jazmine Perkins (Hawaii; 2008).
