Washington State opens play in the Pac-12 Tournament tonight and as if playing in a single-elimination postseason tournament wasn't enough, the Cougars will play Washington.
The Cougars have won two-straight games and could crash the NCAA Tournament party with four more wins. Whether WSU can pull off the improbable postseason run remains to be seen, but no one wants to end their season with a loss to a rival. On the flip side, a win tonight against Washington would be one of the sweetest of the season.
The game is scheduled to tip at 8:30 p.m. PT and will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
