DAUGHERTY REACHES 600
WSU's meeting against Oregon (Jan. 3) was the 600th game of June Daugherty's head coaching career. Daugherty, in her third year at WSU, also spent 11 years at Washington (1996-2007) and seven years at Boise State (1989-96). Her record through 600 career games is 335-265 (.558).
Freshman guard KiKi Moore leads the Pacific-10 Conference and ranks ninth nationally in steals (3.3). She also ranks tied for fourth in the league in assists (3.6), and 13th in scoring (13.5).
CENTER OF ATTENTION
Freshman center Carly Noyes already has nine multiple-block games - including each of the last six - in her debut season. She recorded four blocks against Oregon, tying WSU's freshman NCAA single-game record. Her block average (1.9) ranks second in the Pac-10, and her season total (27) is already the second-most by a Cougar freshman in NCAA history.
The Cougars will be looking for their first victory in 49 meetings with the Cardinal, having lost each of the previous 48. WSU is 0-24 when playing in Palo Alto, Calif.
The Cougars lead the conference and rank 18th-nationally in turnover margin, forcing 5.73 more turnovers per game than committing.
