Impact of WSU’s win over UCLA

From Pullman — Washington State's win over UCLA last night was more than just an uplifting couple hours at the end of a dreary season. The game leapfrogged WSU over USC in the standings, keeping WSU out of last place in the conference. That means that 11th-seeded WSU will take on sixth-seed Stanford on Wednesday in Las Vegas' MGM Grand in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament. The game is slated for 8:36 p.m., an oddly specific time considering that it almost assuredly won't start until after 9.

The Cougars will need to pull off another upset to advance. Stanford went 2-0 against WSU this season and the Cougars have never beaten the Cardinal in postseason play. In 2008 the Cougars lost to Stanford 75-68 before both teams would advance to the NCAA Tournament's “Sweet 16.”

The winner will have a date with No. 3 seed Arizona State.
