Who's ready for some lunchtime college basketball? In a mere six hours from the time of this post, Washington State will face Oregon State in the opening game of the Pac-12 Tournament. If the Cougars win, they will advance to play Washington. A loss could end their season or at best send them to a low level postseason tournament.
A lot of you will likely be at work or in class during the game, but fear not, we will still have a gamethread, radio feed and enough live stats to keep you from doing anything productive. The only previous time WSU faced OSU in the conference tournament, the teams played a double overtime thriller with the Beavers winning 74-68. Based on that sample size, there is a 100 percent chance this game in entertaining.
If that isn't enough to convince you to watch, there is also the fact every WSU-OSU game produces hilarious Craig Robinson pictures, just like this one.
