PULLMAN, Wash. — Isaac Bonton had a first half to forget, but came on strong after the break to lead the Washington State Cougars to a 56-52 win over Texas Southern in the opener Wednesday night.

Bonton went 1-13 shooting in the first half, but finished the game with 28 points and 7 rebounds to lead the offense.

This was the first game played by the Cougars since the Covid pandemic shut down college basketball in March.
