SEATTLE — Faisal Aden came off the bench to score 17 points and the Washington State men’s basketball team continued to recover from its early-season slump with a 67-56 win over Pepperdine on Thursday night.

DaVonte Lacy added 15 for the Cougars (8-4), who have won six straight games — albeit not against the strongest competition — as they head into Pac-12 Conference play next Thursday against Oregon.

Washington State improved to 7-0 playing its annual game at Seattle’s KeyArena. It is part of a long stretch of more than a month where the Cougars will technically play three home games but none on campus in Pullman.

Corbin Moore led Pepperdine (6-5) with 14 points.
