PULLMAN – Fourth-year Washington State women’s basketball coach June Daugherty could point to a variety of setbacks that kept the the Cougars in the Pac-10’s bottom tier last season.
Their youth, which ranked sixth in NCAA Division I, and the inability to finish down the stretch being the most prevalent.
Amidst the Cougars’ 8-23, 3-15 campaign, however, the silver lining for Daugherty’s club wasn’t a chore to distinguish.
Washington State was competitive in the bulk of its Pac-10 meetings – not an annual occurence. Seemingly, the Cougars are catching up.
“We were in a lot of games last year,” Daugherty said. “But we couldn’t finish. Some of that has to do with coaching, and some had to do with inexperience.”
