Washington State Cougars basketball outlook


RECORD: 10-4 overall, 0-2 Pac-10

COMING UP: Today vs. Oregon State, 7 p.m.; Saturday vs. Oregon, 7:30 p.m. (FSN).

OUTLOOK: So which Beavers (7-6) team will show up in Beasley Coliseum tonight? The one that lost to Texas Southern, Utah Valley and George Washington, all at home? Or the one that upset Arizona 76-75 last Sunday to go to 2-0 in Pac-10 play? Since redshirt freshman Roberto Nelson became eligible, OSU is 4-2, though the improved play of 6-foot-7, 260-pound Joe Burton has played a bigger role. The Ducks (7-7), under first-year coach Dana Altman, have struggled recently, losing four consecutive games, including to both Arizona schools opening conference play at home.
