Current Records: Washington State 15-13; Oregon State 3-24
What to KnowA Pac-12 battle is on tap between the Washington State Cougars and the Oregon State Beavers at 11 p.m. ET on Monday at Gill Coliseum. The teams split their matchups last year, with Washington State winning the first 59-55 at home and Oregon State taking the second 68-66.
The Cougars came up short against the Washington Huskies this past Saturday, falling 78-70. Guard Michael Flowers did his best for Washington State, finishing with 30 points (a whopping 43% of their total) along with five boards.
Meanwhile, it’s never fun to lose, and it’s even less fun to lose 94-55, which was the final score in Oregon State’s tilt against the UCLA Bruins this past Saturday. Guard Jarod Lucas had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only nine points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 35 minutes on the court.
Washington State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
Washington State is now 15-13 while the Beavers sit at 3-24. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Cougars have only been able to knock down 40.90% percent of their shots, which is the 28th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. Oregon State has experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 47.60% from the floor on average, which is the second highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
