COMING UP: Sunday at Washington (Root), 12:30 p.m.
OUTLOOK: Three chances remain for Washington State to avoid its worst conference record since the 2002-03 season, when the Cougars finished 2-16 in Paul Graham’s final season as coach. Sunday’s game against Washington also presents another opportunity for WSU to improve against a team it nearly beat the first time around. On Jan. 5 in Pullman, the Cougars fell behind the Huskies 21-4 before making up the deficit, ultimately falling in a 68-63 loss. UW’s season has been up-and-down – the Huskies started 4-0 but have gone just 3-8 – though they are coming off an impressive 68-59 road win over Arizona State.
