Yikes, Cougs score only 25 points in basketball loss

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Washington State Cougars scored only 25 points against the Arizona Wildcats Thursday night -- and that was in basketball.

The Cougs lost, 60-25, in its Pac-12 opener against the nation's No. 1-ranked team. It was the fewest points ever scored in the University of Arizona's McHale Center.

The Cougars scored only 7 points in the first half, but put up 18 points later to avoid setting an all-time low for points scored in the shot clock era (20 by St. Louis in 2008).

Washington State's leading scorer was Junior Longrus with just six points on 2 of 6 shooting.

Arizona was led by 11 points from Kaleb Tarczewski, the only player in double figures. The Wildcats moved to 14-0 with the win.

The Cougs play Arizona State on Saturday.
