The Cougars (7-2) put five players in double figures. Gueye had 14 points with 10 rebounds, TJ Bamba and DJ Rodman also had 14 points and Michael Flowers added 13 points and five assists.

Ty Roberts hit his only free throw for the Cougars, giving him 24 straight to start his career, matching Klay Thompson for the WSU record.

Weber State (8-1), one of 12 undefeated teams starting the day, scored seven-straight, pulling within 26-23 on Dillon Jones’ three-point play at 3:01 but the Cougars closed the half with a 9-1 surge to go up 35-24.

The Wildcats scored the first basket of the second half but Washington State scored three straight baskets at the rim for a 41-26 lead and the Cougars were ahead by double figures the rest of the way.
