Washington State Cougars

Thu., Jan. 7, 2010

RECORD: 11-3 overall, 1-1 Pac-10

COMING UP: Friday at Arizona, 5:30 p.m., FSN; Sunday at Arizona State, 11:30 a.m., FSN.

OUTLOOK: The Cougars’ first Pac-10 road trip this season starts in a place, Tucson, where WSU has won just twice in the past 26 years. Both of those have come since 2005, when the Cougars broke a 20-game losing streak at the McKale Center. The Wildcats are led by a senior (Nic Wise) and a freshman (Derrick Williams), both of whom average 15.1 points per game. Up the road in Tempe, WSU will face an ASU team that lost both games in Los Angeles last weekend. The defeats couldn’t have been more different, as the Sun Devils rallied but still lost a 72-70 shootout at UCLA before shooting 24 percent in a 47-37 loss at USC.
