TUCSON,Ariz. - On a night that saw Borislava Hristova put her name among the elite in WSU history with her 1,000th career point, it was a balanced all-around attack that netted the Cougars (10-13, 3-8 Pac-12) an impressive 78-60 win over Arizona (5-17, 1-10 Pac-12) Friday night in Tucson.
For Hristova, the historic bucket would come on her second shot of the night as she scored the Cougs opening points of the night en route to her 19th double-digit scoring game of the year. After falling behind in the first quarter, the Cougs went on a rampage in the second, outscoring the Wildcats 27-10 in the period to take a nine point.
The rout stemmed from behind the arc as the Cougs hit 5-of-8 from deep while finishing the game with nine total threes.. The 15 minutes in the locker room would not slow the Cougs as WSU scored the first 11 points of the third and pushed their lead to as much as 21 points early in the new half.
