Four corners: Washington State Cougars
COMING UP: Tonight at Oregon State, 6 (Pac-12 Wash.); Sunday at Oregon, 6 p.m. (Pac-12 Wash.)
OUTLOOK: The Cougars are playing better basketball of late but have yet to translate that into wins. While the team came close against the Bay Area schools last week, they were unable to seal the deal against either team. The return of DaVonte Lacy has increased WSU’s scoring output in Pac-12 games from just over 49 points per game to 66. With criticism around the program ramping up, there will be increased scrutiny during the season’s last few weeks. The Cougars’ season has been disappointing but they can still salvage some progress with a few road wins.
