Brock Motum added 17 points and seven rebounds for Washington State, which trailed 8-6 midway through the first half before Ladd scored seven points and Motum five during the run which put the Cougars on top 26-10 with 4:37 left in the half.

Chris Hansen's 12 points led Idaho State (1-10), which lost its fifth consecutive game. The Bengals are 0-3 against Pac-12 teams this season with previous losses to Utah and Oregon.
