The Cougars and Huskies face each other for the third time this year, and this time the stakes are ever-so-slightly higher. The game tips at approximately 8:30 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Networks. Discuss all the action here.
The Huskies and Cougars have faced each other three times in a season twice since 2007. The last two came after WSU swept the season series. This time, the Huskies are the team going for three-straight. Can the Cougs turn the tables?
If the Cougars are as good as they played last week against UCLA and USC, then this is sure to be a good game. Kenpom essentially predicts a toss-up, with UW winning 51 percent of the time with an average score of 64-63. The Cougs are ranked No. 88 in his rankings, with UW at No. 85. If you are a college basketball fan and believe what the numbers say, then be pumped about this game.
Previous matchups indicate that this should be a good game as well. WSU has done their typical fade in the second half routine in the two prior meetings with Washington, but they managed to avoid that against the Bruins and Trojans. Have they finally learned to finish? Is that even a thing?
I'm hoping for Brock Motum to continue the sprint to the line he started in Pullman. He's one of the best and it wouldn't be so bad to see him beat the Huskies.
Remember, no illegal stream threads and Go Cougs!
