Washington State will play in Pullman for the first time in more than two weeks today when the Cougars host San Jose State, a team that would love to have only finals to worry about.
The Spartans (2-9) are using two football players to help fill out the roster after five players, including the team’s top four scorers, were suspended for violating team rules. Two more players are out because of injuries, leaving SJSU with only six available basketball players. Coach Dave Wojcik turned to the football team for help, enlisting receiver Tyler Winston and tight end Andrew Vollert.
WSU (4-6) has lost its last two games, against Gonzaga in Spokane and at Santa Clara, and is hoping to build some momentum heading into Pac-12 play, which the Cougars will open with two consecutive weeks on the road.
The game will tip off at 4 p.m. at Beasley Coliseum and will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
