PULLMAN, Wash. -- Faisal Aden scored 33 points and Washington State beat Stanford 81-69 Thursday night.
The Cougars (10-8, 2-4) snapped a three-game losing streak and knocked the Cardinal (15-4, 5-2) out of first place in the conference on a night where hazardous weather kept the crowd at an announced 3,119.
The game was the Cougars' first in Pullman since a Dec. 18 win over Western Oregon. They played two games designated as "home" games in Spokane -- against Pac-12 rivals Oregon State and Oregon -- and one in Seattle.
It's the only meeting between the schools this season due to the expansion of the conference.
