Wednesday, February 20th brings you some hump day Pac-12 college basketball action, as the Colorado Buffaloes head to the Palouse to take on the Washington State Cougars, live from the Beasley Coliseum.
Colorado won the last meeting between these two schools on their home court back in January, 92-60, but we will see if the Cougars may have an answer for them this time out.
Colorado comes into this game with a nice five game win streak attached to their resume, and as mentioned above, they dismantled this Cougars team last month up in Boulder.
But the Buffaloes Achilles Heal this season has been their play on the road. They are the better team between these two, but can they get the win on the road will be their biggest question heading into Wednesday night.
In their 67-60 win over Arizona on Sunday, the Buffaloes shot an impressive 55.8% from the field, but only 35.7% from downtown. Luckily they made the most out of their 16 trips to the free throw line, making 14 of them for a 87.5% clip. Those free baskets can make a huge difference in a close game.
Junior F Lucas Siewert led the way for Colorado with 15 points and 9 rebounds against the Wildcats in a game where the Buffs only had three players in double digits in scoring. Sophomore G Tyler Bey just missed out on a double-double with 9 points and a team high 10 rebounds.
Washington State Cougars
One week after going on the road and sweeping the Arizona schools, the Cougars came home, a place where they actually have a winning record, and lost to their in state rivals, and Pac-12 leaders, the Washington Huskies 72-70.
Those last three games showed a great improvement in this Cougars team, one that they should be able to carry into this game as well. A win hear for them is not entirely out of the question, as they seem to be a different basketball team when they play games here in Pullman.
The Cougars outshot the Huskies in every percentage category on Saturday night. They out rebounded them too. But the biggest stat from that game was the amount of turnovers the Cougars had. 19. You can’t expect to win a close game when you give the ball up 9 more times then your opponent does.
Sophomore F Marvin Cannon had a game high 25 points in the loss to Washington, and besides the 16 from Senior F Robert Franks, he got hardly any other support from his teammates.

Free Colorado Buffaloes vs. Washington State Cougars NCAAB Prediction:
They may be near the bottom of the Pac-12, but after the way that they played in their last three games, an upset is not out of the question in this game for the Washington State Cougars.
Colorado is, and will continue to be the better team when this game is said and done though. I like what the Cougars have done recently, but Colorado is the safe bet.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Colorado -4.5
Take the Buffaloes to win this one on the road. Every game from here on out is for seeding into the Pac-12 Tournament for them now, as it will be their only chance to make it to the NCAA Tournament next month. A loss here would be devastating for their chances.
