ERNIE KENT relied heavily on seniors and sophomore Josh Hawkinson during his first men's basketball season at Washington State.

LAS VEGAS -- Cal rides the low post to a first-round win in the Pac-12 Tournament, with David Kravish pouring in a career-high 25 points and Dwight Tarwater pulling down key offensive rebounds early in the game against Washington State.
SLOPPY PASSING, poor rebounding, no interior defense. Yet somehow Washington State led 16-15 early on against Cal in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament. But poor play -- particularly an Olé defense -- eventually catches up to you. And the Cougs’ tournament stay was a short one after an 82-59 rout at the hands of the Bears.
LAS VEGAS -- California meets up with Washington State for the third time this season in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament in Sin City. Will it be Tyrone Wallace or DaVonte Lacy who advances to a second-round date with No. 1-seed Arizona?

But it would be senior guard DaVonte Lacy who coaxed in a last second jumper to send the game into overtime. And Lacy and his two fellow Cougar seniors were just getting warmed up.
