Washington State loses top two leading scorers

A rough season got a little rougher for the Washington State men’s basketball team this week. On Monday, junior forward Robert Franks decided to forgo his senior year and declare for this year’s NBA draft. He led the Cougs in scoring this season, averaging 17.4 points a game.

On Tuesday, the second-leading scorer and assist leader Malachi Flynn announced on Twitter he will transfer to another school next season. Flynn averaged 15.8 ppg and nearly 5 assists.

Head coach Ernie Kent released a statement via Twitter Tuesday, saying, “I appreciate all Malachi Flynn has done for our program over the last two years. He made a decision that is best for him and his family and we wish him well.”

The Cougars were 4-14 in the PAC-12 Conference this year, 12-19 overall.
