Elleby scores 34, Washington St. beats Washington 79-67

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) Every time he put the ball up it seemed like it was going in.

CJ Elleby scored a career-high 34 points and had his fourth double-double of the season to lead Washington State to a 79-67 victory over in-state rival Washington on Sunday.

After scoring just seven points on 2-of-12 shooting in his team’s 66-49 loss vs. Arizona, Elleby made 9 of 16 from the field, including 6 of 9 from beyond the arc, hit 10 of 10 from the free-throw line and grabbed 10 rebounds.

“Honestly, the career high doesn’t really matter to me. If we had lost and I had had the same amount of points I would have been pretty upset,” Elleby said. “But we got the win and that’s what matters. We protect the house. The Huskies came in and obviously it is a big game for Pullman and the Cougars. We got the job done and that’s what matters.”
