Cougs lose to Oregon State

WSU dropped to 1-8 on the road this season with a loss at Oregon State on Thursday.

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Nearly exactly a month after Oregon State beat WSU by 11 points in Pullman, the Beavers edged the Cougars by 11 point in Corvallis on Thursday. You can say a lot of things about the WSU basketball team this season, but you can't say they aren't consistent.

Washington State is now 2-12 in Pac-12 play and 9-17 overall. The Cougars have won one true road game this season, a 67-66 win against Idaho in early December. They'll get two more opportunities this season with upcoming road games against Oregon and Washington, but it's probably best not to get your hopes up. With the win on Thursday, Oregon State swept the season series, the first time the Beavers have done that since the 2005-06 season.

If you're looking for a positive, D.J. Shelton notched a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds, inching closer to averaging a double-double on the season. He's now averaging 9.07 rebounds per game. Assuming the Cougars go one-and-done in the Pac-12 tournament, they have five games remaining this season. Shelton would need to pull down 74 rebounds -- or 14.8 per game -- to hit 10.0 for the season.

Conventional wisdom holds that college baseball teams from colder climates are often behind their southern competition early in the season. Winter weather makes practicing outdoors difficult and those teams often don’t hit their strides until later in the spring.
