Sisoho Jawara averaged 12.0 points and led the Wildcats with 3.2 assists per-game in his first season in Ogden.

“They’ve put in the work, and we’ve got a lot of guys that’ve put in the work, but those guys have been diligent ever since they stepped on campus,” Wildcats head coach Randy Rahe said.“Those guys invested into it and bought into it, that’s who they are. From day one they’ve lived in the gym.”

The Wildcats finished the regular season with a 17-5 overall record and were 12-3 in conference play.

WSU heads to the Big Sky Conference Tournament as the No. 3 seed following only behind No.1 Southern Utah and No. 2 Eastern Washington.

“I feel like we’re the best team in the conference and the only thing we got to do is stay together,” Sisoho Jawara said.

The Wildcats take on the Montana Grizzlies in the Big Sky Tournament quarterfinals in Boise on March 11.
