Washington State keeping it close

With 5:42 remaining in the first half, Washington State had to like the pace of the game so far even though it trailed 19-14.

The Cougars want to keep the scoring low and had North Carolina on a pace to score less than 60. The Tar Heels were only 8 of 21 shooting, All-American Tyler Hansbrough was scoreless and UNC had only six fast-break points.

That's about as good of a start as WSU coach Tony Bennett could've scripted.
