WSU Weekly Update: Cougin' it

Washington State has made quiet a living in their past two games holding tight and then falling apart in the closing seconds, which leaves them at 3-4 in the conference and 11-8 overall.

On top of the conference? We'll it's those loathsome Huskies, but WSU has nobody to blame but themselves as they blew chances again both So-Cal teams and now they're facing an uphill battle for the rest of the season (or until the teams from Oregon come to play in Pullman).

One helpful tidbit is that the Huskies and Cougars are the only two teams in the Pac-10 that haven't lost of on the road this season. Which means their four losses came at home - ick - so much for that Friel Court advantage.

They'll be at No. 14 Arizona State this Thursday, who just so happens to be the highest ranked squad in the Pac-10, just ahead of the Huskies, who got the national nod at No. 25 and the No. 17 UCLA Bruins.

Then Wazzu will take on Arizona on Saturday which should be an easier game than the Sun Devils. The Wildcats have been pretty darn disappointing this season, 2-5 in Pac-10 play.

While the Cougars proved they can hang against ranked teams, they just haven't been able to finish. Any idea why?
