PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Mason Landdeck came off the bench to score 18 of his 24 points in the second half, making four free throws in the final 16 seconds, as Eastern Washington rallied to beat Washington State for the first time, 76-71. The Eagles (3-3), who had been 0-4 all-time against WSU, trailed 40-28 at halftime. Steele Venters sank a 3-pointer coming out of intermission for the Eagles (3-3) and Rylan Bergersen hit from distance to cap a 10-0 run and get Eastern within 40-38. Landdeck buried a 3 to put the Eagles on top 48-47 with 12:27 remaining. The Cougars (5-1) knotted the score at 65 on a 3-pointer by Michael Flowers with 2:49 left to play, but Bergersen answered with a three-point play and EWU stayed in front from there.
