PULLMAN — Charlie Enquist scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to lead Washington State past Eastern Washington 75-49 in a nonconference game Saturday.

It was senior Enquist's first career double-double.

"That's as satisfying as it gets," said Enquist, whose hometown is Edmonds. "I'm pretty sure every point I scored was dished off from my teammates."

Brock Motum and Reggie Moore each added 15 points for WSU (4-4).

Enquist shot 7 for 8 from the floor and was 6 of 8 from the free-throw line.

"It's always nice to see a guy like that get rewarded," Cougars coach Ken Bone said. "He's a hard worker, a great team guy."

Enquist's performance came at a good time, with the Cougars' leading scorer, Faisal Aden, out with a concussion and senior Abe Lodwick out with a foot/ankle injury.

Bone said Moore's emergence as a scorer was also needed. Moore, a former standout at Rainier Beach High School in Seattle, made 6 of 9 shots but also had nine of WSU's 21 turnovers.

"We made a great effort to share the ball," Bone said. "Unfortunately, we shared it with both teams. That's disappointing."

Collin Chiverton led the Eagles (4-3) with 12 points but was 3 of 11 from the field. Tremayne Johnson added 11 points.

The Cougars broke the game open midway through the first half with a 14-0 run and had a 41-25 lead at the break.

Eastern, which hasn't won in Pullman since 1952, shot 25.4 percent from the field, compared with 50 percent for WSU.

"When you are playing on the road and adversity is coming at you, that's when you have to come together and be more cohesive, more unified," first-year Eagles coach Jim Hayford said. "And we obviously splintered."
