PULLMAN – Nike McClure surpassed her own school record and tied a Pac-12 mark with 12 blocked shots to help the Washington State women’s team beat Colorado 67-56 on Saturday.

Sophomore McClure exceeded her WSU record of seven blocks set Feb. 12 against Arizona. She matched a record for most blocks in a conference game set in February 1988 by Oregon’s Stefanie Kasperski, who had 13 blocks in a nonconference game in the same season.

The 6-foot-3 McClure, a graduate of W.F. West High School in Chehalis, had 12 rebounds for her first double-double as a Cougar.

WSU had a team-record 14 blocks, beating the previous mark of 11 set last season. The Cougars (11-18 overall, 6-12 Pac-12) have 131 blocks this season, surpassing last season’s program record of 120.
