OPENING FIVE

1. The Cougars return to Pullman to host Detroit Mercy in the second home game of the season, Friday, Nov. 25 at 1 p.m. at Beasley Coliseum. The matchup marks the first all-time meeting between WSU and Detroit Mercy. The Titans are led by Antoine Davis, the Horizon League Preseason Player of the Year and Detroit Mercy’s all-time leading scorer with 2,882 career points (15th in NCAA history).

2. Last time out, WSU buried a season-high 15 3-pointers to beat Eastern Washington, 82-56, at Spokane Arena Monday night. The Cougars were led by Jabe Mullins with a career-high 24 points on 8-of-11 from beyond the arc. WSU also dished out a season-best 20 assists in the win with just six turnovers.

3. TJ Bamba has scored in double figures for three-straight games, including a career-high 24 points against Boise State, Nov. 12 – the first 20-point game of his career. Bamba is averaging a team-best 15.5 points per game on 51.2% shooting, to go along with 5.0 rebounds per game.
