Today the Washington State Cougars will attempt to win their first Pac-12 road game since a 71-68 victory at Oregon State on Jan. 26, 2013. It was their only conference road win that season. They'll also hope to make it a sweep against rival Washington this season. We previewed that game in our Four Corners on Thursday ... WSU's first win over UW was a season-changer for the Huskies ... The Cougars sure could use a big performance from Que Johnson, who has been quiet of late ... The women's team nearly pulled off a critical upset at No. 18 California but fell in overtime ... The Bruins battled without two key players but Oregon's double-overtime win puts the NCAA tournament within the Ducks' crosshairs ... The one they call "Zeus" is still climbing his Mt. Olympus ... USC lost again. This time to USC.
