Pac-12 Men's Basketball

Utah Utes (13-5, 2-3)

at Washington State Cougars (9-8, 1-4) 

Thursday, Jan. 21, 8 p.m. | Beasley Coliseum, Pullman 

Watch: Fox Sports 1

Outlook: The Arizona trip went poorly for the Cougars, mostly because of their frequent bouts of sluggish offense and surprising difficulty defending 3-pointers. A Utah team that has struggled to shoot from the outside this season may provide some respite for the Cougars, who are likely to try double-teaming star center Jakob Poeltl, in the same manner they defended Arizona’s big men. - Jacob Thorpe
