The Apple Cup takes place Sunday as Washington State takes on Washington in a Pac-12 rivalry.
Washington State swept this series last season, but the Cougars have now dropped six games in a row after losing consecutive games to Colorado over the past week.
The Huskies lost their first seven conference games, but have won two in a row.
Washington State Cougars
Having Isaac Bonton and Noah Williams back on the court will be a major factor for the Cougars to get back to the win column. The backcourt duo has dealt with ailments all year.
Bonton, the team’s leading scorer with 18 PPG, didn’t play earlier this week due to flu symptoms. Williams left a game earlier this week because he was puking and had flu-like symptoms. The two combine for 30 points per game.
The Cougars offense is below the national average with Williams and Bonton in the lineup. Without them, things could get catastrophic for the Coogs.
Speaking of lack of scoring, Washington has struggled to find offense this season outside of Quade Green. The Kentucky transfer is the only player averaging over 10 PPG, but Jamal Bey has stepped up recently.
Bey notched a career-high 28 points in the upset over Utah earlier this week and was recognized as the PAC-12 player of the week. This is a good sign for a Washington team that ranks outside the top 100 in all major offensive metrics.
Marcus Tsohonis and Erik Stevenson have each been pitching in double figure efforts of late as well. Stevenson had 17 points against Colorado while Tsohonis had 27. If the Huskies want to win, they will need continued production from players not named Quade Green.
- Cougars are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400.
- Cougars are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
- Cougars are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of less than .400.
- Cougars are 4-14 ATS in their last 18 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
Free Washington State Cougars vs. Washington Huskies NCAAB Prediction:
This is a prime spot for Washington. They are the better team when both squads are at full strength. With Wazzou’s two best players questionable and with them playing bad basketball of late, the Huskies are the play.
