Washington State will look to finish their three game homestand strong today as they host Cal State Northridge at 8:00 pm in Beasley Coliseum. The Cougars (3-1) have yet to play outside of the state with their only away game being in Seattle when they dropped their second game of the season to Seattle U. The game will be televised on Pac-12 Networks for those unable to make it.

The Mustangs (1-3) have played tough this year with two of their three losses coming by three points each game while their lone win was also by three points over Tennessee State last Tuesday.

The Cougars started out their homestand with a 84-70 win over Cal Poly last Monday and then cruised to an 80-52 victory over Delaware State on Saturday.

Robert Franks has led the team so far this season with 85 points, 28 rebounds, and 4 blocks in just three games. The next closest to him is Ahmed Ali who has 44 points, 5 steals, and 14 steals in his four games.

Trying to lead the Mustangs will be Lamine Diane who averages almost 25 points a game and leads the team in steals, blocks, and rebounds in his four games. Diane finished with 29 points, 2 steals, and 12 rebounds in their 80-77 victory over Tennessee State last Tuesday. Their only other player with more than 25 points on the season is Terrell Gomez who has 82 for an average of 20.5 points per game.

The Cougars trip away from home wont last long as they will head to New Mexico for a game against New Mexico State on Saturday December 1st before returning back to Beasley where they will play three of four at home with the fourth game being a home-away-from-home game in Kennewick against Montana State on December 9th.
