Washington State coach Ken Bone isn't about to panic despite his team having a 2-7 conference record through the first half of the Pacific-12 season.
''I'd feel different if we were getting blown out,'' Bone said after No. 8 Arizona beat the Cougars 79-65 on Saturday. ''Our guys show up every game and bust their tails.''
This was their worst conference loss, Bone noted, and he doesn't plan to make any personnel changes.
''We're going to keep trying to get better,'' Bone said. ''If we were getting blown out, I would have thought, `Man, we've got to change things.'''
Washington State fell behind 18-9 early in the game, and couldn't make up the deficit, in part because guard Mike Ladd picked up three early fouls and spent most of the first half on the bench.
''We hung in there and hung in there and hung in there against a really good team,'' Bone said.
