Coming up: Washington State Cougars

RECORD: 9-7 overall, 1-3 Pac-12

COMING UP: Sunday at Washington, 4 p.m. (Root)

OUTLOOK: The Cougars posted two fairly dominant wins over the Huskies in the regular season last year before Washington claimed a win in the conference tournament. But neither team will look the same when they renew the rivalry at Hec Edmundson Pavilion this weekend. Klay Thompson and DeAngelo Casto, both departed, were instrumental in last season’s WSU wins. And key cogs Isaiah Thomas and Matthew Bryan-Amaning are no longer Huskies. WSU will have to contend with freshman point guard Tony Wroten, a flashy offensive player who scores well but also struggles with overaggressiveness and poor free-throw shooting.
