Good morning, Coug fans! This Sunday our Washington State Cougars Women’s basketball faces off against Arizona at home. The game is at 11 am on Pac 12 Washington. Arizona is currently ranked no. 7, and is almost identical to University of Oregon’s current record.
So what do they bring to the table?
Their forward Cate Reese a player to watch. While 3 pointers are not her strong suit, she’s pretty capable in the paint. She put up 25 points against USC, but usually pulls about 12-14 points a game.
Aari McDonald led the team in playing time against Cal, she was in for 29 minutes. She’s 5’6, but pretty deadly. She puts up at least 18 points a game, but the past three games she’s not been able to exceed 12 points. I’d like to keep that trend!
Trinity Baptiste had a breakout game against Cal with 17 points when she’s usually responsible for only 5 or so points.
I would say Arizona pools their skill together, so there isn’t one easy solution to this upcoming game. A somewhat fun fact: Arizona State and Wazzu’s game faced a Covid related cancellation, as did the Arizona - UW game. While this is a strange set up, it does make it easier to shuffle around in the event of Covid cancellations.
I know the world continues to be very strange, but at least we have basketball! And links!
