Washington State 83, Mississippi 57

 Cougs warm up in second half, dump Bulldogs; Face Baylor today

 HONOLULU — Washington State coach Ken Bone is conscious of his club’s adequacy from beyond the perimeter, but doesn’t want it to be the defining trait of the guard-heavy unit.


For a five-minute stretch at the Stan Sheriff Center, though, it was.

Abe Lodwick, Reggie Moore, Klay Thompson and Faisal Aden buried 3s and Aden added a 15-footer in a second-half run which pulled the Cougars away in an 83-57 win over Mississippi State in the first round of the Diamond Head Classic on Wednesday.

 Washington State (9-1), which trailed 40-39 at halftime, will face No. 15 Baylor today at 3:30 in the tournament semifinal.

“Those 3s add up quickly,” Bone said. “When you get up and down the court a little bit and hit some 3s, it adds up real fast.”
