WSU women's basketball set to travel to Seattle for Pac-12 tournament

New, 11 comments

WSU has one final chance to stop their bubble from bursting, and it starts Thursday afternoon in Seattle.

WSU Athletic Communications

The Cougar woman are firmly on the bubble for the NCAA tournament. ESPN's Charlie Creme has WSU as the first team in his "next four out" category in his latest bracket projection. Time is running out to try and get a bid, and their last chance begins tomorrow night.

The Cougars enter the Pac-12 tournament as the 7th seed and are preparing kick off the tournament against the 10th seeded Oregon Ducks tomorrow afternoon at 11:30. The winner advances to the quarter finals to take on the 2nd seeded Arizona State Sun Devils. Should they make it to the semi-finals, it's likely that Stanford will be waiting for them. Needless to say, these would be great resume builders... If they can get the job done.

WSU split with Oregon, winning the first meeting by 3 points January 1st and losing by 1 point on February 6th. The Cougs lost their only meeting with ASU and as for Stanford... Well... let's just say that history isn't on WSU's side when it comes to Stanford.

WSU needs a good performance in the Key Arena this weekend if they want to make the dance for the 2nd time in program history, they will need to play their best basketball of the year.

The tournament tips off from Seattle tomorrow afternoon at 11:30 with WSU and Oregon. You can see all the games through the semi-finals on the Pac-12 Networks (including a "free access day" for non-subscribers on March 7th). The final will be on March 9th and will be on ESPN. The full schedule of games and bracket can be found here.

The 6-foot-3, 293-pounder is known for his athleticism, which he showcased at the combine. Cooper ran the 40-yard dash in 4.86 seconds, the second-fastest time among defensive tackles. (Just for comparison, Suh ran the 40-yard dash in 5.03 seconds.)
