Pac-12 Men's Basketball

Stanford Cardinal (12-11, 5-7) 

at Washington State Cougars (9-16, 1-12)

Thursday, Feb. 18, 7 p.m. | Beasley Coliseum, Pullman

Watch: TV/Online: Pac-12 Networks

Outlook: Washington State enters the week having lost 11 games and about to play its final two games of the regular season. Because these are WSU’s last two games in Beasley Coliseum until next year, and because neither California nor Stanford have been especially impressive, the upcoming contests against the Golden Bears and Cardinal are clearly WSU’s best opportunities to pick up a win or two before the offseason. The Cougars are favored for the first time in months in Thursday’s matchup against the Cardinal, with giving the Cougars a 51 percent chance to win. - Jacob Thorpe
