COACH AND PROGRAM

Ken Bone inherited one of the nation's youngest and most deliberate teams when he moved from Portland State to Washington State in the spring of 2009. His Cougars picked up the pace considerably, ranking 155th in offensive tempo (according to kenpom.com) and averaging 71.9 points per game one year after ranking 340th in tempo and averaging 59.2 points under coach Tony Bennett.
