The Cougars are 1-0 on the season.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington State Cougars Men's basketball team will head to Kennewick, Washington to host the Central Washington Wildcats on Tuesday evening. The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks at 7:00 pm. Washington State has not played a game at the Toyota Center since 2013 when they hosted San Francisco State

Although just a few hours apart from each other, the two teams have not played against each other since 1998. The Cougars hold the all-time series 23-2 and have not lost since 1933.

The Cougars are coming off of a 69-65 win over Montana State in their season opener last Friday. Derrien King scored a career high 22 points while Josh Hawkinson finished with a double-double that included 16 points.

Central Washington has already played two games this season and is led by Dom Hunter who has averaged 26.5 points per game and is 19 of 19 from the free throw line.

The Cougars will then head to St. Thomas for the Virgin Islands Paradise Jam Tournament on Friday.
