PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Two-time Pac-12 leading scorer Brock Motum may be gone to graduation but that has Washington State coach Ken Bone looking to shore up his defense.
Bone wants the Cougars to be much more aggressive on defense this season.
The emphasis on defense is a return to the style of play favored by former coach Tony Bennett, who led the Cougars to their most successful seasons in decades before leaving for Virginia following the 2008-09 season.
Bone, who replaced Bennett, said the Cougars' depth at guard is a major reason for the defensive emphasis.
