Staff Picks: Arizona at Washington State

With a population smaller than the number of students enrolled at the UA, literally all of Pullman, Wash., should be expected to be at this game tomorrow night.  The Pacific 10 Conference first-place Wildcats can expect a hostile Cougar crowd on hand, and having already beaten Arizona once this season in McKale Center, Wazzou, led by scoring machine Klay Thompson, has some confidence.  If Arizona can avoid falling behind early, I see them leaving Pullman with the W.

Just a week ago, talking about the NCAA tournament in Tucson was something that you didn’t do. Suddenly after a solid weekend for the UA, which saw them rise to first place in the Pac-10, the tourney talk is back. Forgotten are the beat-downs courtesy of San Diego State University and Brigham Young University. The Wildcats hope to avoid a letdown this weekend and Pullman is a tough place to do that. With the Pac-10 down this season the Wildcats need to get as many quality wins as possible, and that quest starts this weekend.

Have a baby by Mychal Thompson, baby be a millionaire. Washington State’s Klay Thompson, Mychal’s son, is an explosive scorer for the Cougars and an NBA-level talent who the Wildcats will have to subdue. Now with a more coordinated defense, Arizona will have a shot to beat the Cougars, who barely slipped out of McKale Center with a win early in the season. But as the young Wildcats have yet to play a two-game stretch in such a short period of time and so far away from Tucson, the Cougars will again defeat Arizona.
