What to Know
The Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars are set to square off in a Pac-12 matchup at 11 p.m. ET Feb. 23 at Wallis Beasley Performing Arts Coliseum. The teams split their matchups last year, with Washington State winning the first 77-62 on the road and the Huskies taking the second 65-63.
Things couldn’t have gone much worse for Washington as they lost 76-50 to the UCLA Bruins on Saturday. Guard Terrell Brown Jr. had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with 13 points on 5-for-17 shooting and turning the ball over four times in his 37 minutes on the court.
Washington State lost a heartbreaker to the Southern California Trojans when they met last December, and they left with a heavy heart again on Sunday. Washington State lost 62-60 to USC on a last-minute half-court bomb from the Trojans’ guard Boogie Ellis with 0:03 remaining. Four players on the Cougars scored in the double digits: guard Tyrell Roberts (16), guard Noah Williams (14), guard Michael Flowers (12), and forward Andrej Jakimovski (10).
The Huskies are expected to lose this next one by 9.5. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with Washington, who are 13-12 against the spread.
The losses put Washington at 13-12 and Washington State at 14-12. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: Washington has only been able to knock down 40.20% percent of their shots, which is the 14th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Washington State has experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 40.30% percent of their shots, which is the 18th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It could be a slow night.
