COMING UP: Tonight vs. Arizona, 6 (Root); Saturday vs. Arizona State, 5 p.m. (Root)
OUTLOOK: WSU’s trip to the desert three weeks ago was not an enjoyable one. The Wildcats (18-8, 9-4) made 15 of 26 3-point attempts, leading by as many as 28 points in an 85-61 win. WSU guard Faisal Aden went down in the first half with a season-ending knee injury. Arizona enters the game on a four-game winning streak and could be in first place in the conference by the end of the weekend. Arizona State (8-17, 4-9) also had success from the 3-point line against the Cougars the first time around, making 7 of 15 in a 71-67 win. The Sun Devils were without guard Trent Lockett (ankle) in that game, but he is expected to play this weekend.
