This matchup will feature the California Golden Bears and the Washington State Cougars. Both teams are win-less in PAC-12 play and will be looking any kind of momentum to rejuvenate their season.
The last meeting between these two teams ended in a Washington State win.
California Golden Bears
The Golden Bears enter this game on a five game losing streak. By record they are dead last in the PAC-12 and will need a significant turn around if they want to have any chance to make the postseason.
The only part of the Cal offense that is good is their free throw shooting. As a team they shoot 76.4% from the line, which is 17th in the country. If the Golden Bears are going to win their first conference game, they will need to get to the free throw line all night long.
Defensively, the Golden Bears are one of the worst in the entire country. They allow 80 points per game and allow their opponents to shoot 49.8% from the field.
Washington State Cougars
The Cougars also enter this game on a five game losing streak. They have been blown out in all three conference games this year and will be looking to finally win a game to hopefully turn their season around.
The Cougars offense is actually scoring quite a lot this season. They average 79.1 points per game. However, during their five game losing streak, they have not scored more than 75 in a game. Look for them to focus on eclipsing the 75 point mark, which they should be able to do given the defense they are playing against.
Since conference play started the Cougars are allowing a whopping 88.3 points on average. Luckily for them, the Cal Bears offense has not been very good so they should be able to limit them significantly. If the Cougars can keep the Golden Bears under the 80 mark, they will most likely pick up the win.
