Another huge game for Evans and Carroll came against the Shockers. They combined for 44 points and 10 rebounds. However, WSU entered this game as 7.5 point favorites. It was another one of those games, much like the Arkansas game, that went completely against the script.
Yet, that has somewhat become standard operating procedure for Underwood since his time at Stephen F. Austin. The Lumberjacks were never expected to do much but Underwood led them to a 53-1 record in conference play during his tenure there.
Dziagwa and Averette gave the Cowboys a huge boost off the bench with 17 points and five assists combined.
The Cowboys shot 52.5 percent from the field and 50 percent from three-point range, while the Shockers shot just 36.5 percent from the field and 17.6 percent from three.
Hamonds and Evans both shot better than 50 percent from three-point range and also both scored in double figures.
