College Basketball Tonight

WASHINGTON STATE AT ARIZONA Sole possession of second place in the Pacific-10 Conference and perhaps even a chance to overtake leagueleading UCLA will be on the line when the Cougars (5-2 in the Pac-10 and 10-5 overall) face the 12th-ranked Wildcats (5-2 and 15-4) at McKale Center. Tipoff has been moved up to 5 p.m. (PST)<. At a glance Having lost 18 in a row to the Wildcats, the Cougars really didn't have to spot Arizona a point guard. But that's what they will do, thanks to the absence of sophomore starter Donminic Ellison, who stayed home with a severe case of chicken pox. That makes the matchup at the point-guard position, where Arizona's Damon Stoudamire has ruled for the last three seasons, nearly impossible for WSU. Cougar coach Kevin Eastman will try to counter Stoudamire's speed, court awareness and scoring ability by alternating freshman Chris Griffin and junior Shamon Antrum. The strategy was a bust earlier in the season against UCLA, when Ellison was serving a one-game suspension, but it's the only realistic thing Eastman can do. "I might play the point a little," Eastman joked earlier in the week. "I'm the next best point guard in our program, and if you've seen me play, that will tell you we're not very good right now." The Cougars, who have won four straight, will also have some matchup problems inside where Mark Hendrickson and Tavares Mack will have to get a body on Arizona's 6-foot-10, 265-pound center Joseph Blair.
