Washington State has been a nonfactor all season long in the PAC 12. They might not have put up the worst record but there is little reason to expect an upset.
Colorado on the other hand has the talent to scare everyone in the league. They were dreadful early but once they got going they were tough to beat. They probably needs to make the finals to have a shot at an NCAA berth too.
Washington State Cougars
The Cougars might be one of the best examples of the value of a great college basketball coach. It is not that long ago that Tony Bennett ran the show, taking the program to back to back NCAA tournaments. Since then it has been pretty bleak in Pullman.
Josh Hawkinson is a nice player, even if few outside the conference know who he is. For the second straight season he has been a double-double machine. Its actually surprising he didn’t grad transfer to a more successful program.
Malachi Flynn represents the future of the program. He is the third leading scorer on the team at 10ppg but he has struggled in conference play. Still that is a good base to build on.
With Hawkinson and fellow senior Ike Iroegbu looking to extend their playing days there could be some emotion for this group. It is not likely to be enough though.
I have been bullish on the Buffs all season long so nobody is more excited about their turnaround this season than me. Things were pretty bleak for a while but this is a talented and experienced group.
Derrick White might be another player that does not have much of a national profile but is a big time contributor. Not many JC product can leap into a power conference and lead a team in scoring and assists. He is a physical PG too.
Speaking of physical that is what you get from Wesley Gordon in the post. The senior is not much of a scorer but he is going to make it difficult for Hawkinson to get his.
Seniors that could be playing for a little more glory is also a description for Xavier Johnson. If you like PAC 12 action you can easily look at this guy as a kind of Dillon Brooks light. When he is going so are the Buffs.

Free Washington State Cougars vs. Colorado Buffaloes NCAAB Prediction:
Nothing is absolute but I am very confident that the Cougars are not a sleeper here. There is no magical run. They are going to lose it is just a matter of by how much.
The Buffs on the other hand could surprise some teams this week and perhaps shake up the bubble watch and even Selection Sunday. I look for them to stay in the conversation by winning this one.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Colorado -10
I think Colorado could be a nice moneyline parlay situation if you play that strategy…at least maybe til the Semis.
