Men's basketball back in action

Missed Cougar basketball? You have a problem, and you're also in luck.

Welcome back?
Welcome back?

It's been nearly a week since the WSU men's basketball team played a game, but the Cougars will be back in action at Friel Court today when they take on Washington. With the way the Pac-12 schedule works, teams only play once during their rivalry week, so WSU got a bit of a break.

That could work out well for WSU as DaVonte Lacy has a chance to return against Washington. There may not be much less to salvage in terms of the postseason, but Lacy's return should be a nice boost for WSU. The Cougars weren't great offensively with Lacy this season, but things have been even worse without him. Watching Lacy and Que Johnson play together should be fun.

The game is set to tip off at 3 p.m., so you have some time to work yourself into a Cougar basketball freenzy. Ready, go.

Riding a four-game losing streak, few things would enliven the Washington State men’s basketball team’s spirit like a win Saturday over rival Washington. With losses mounting, WSU (8-12, 1-7 Pac-12) would likely need a Pac-12 tournament championship to have a shot at the postseason.
