The late game presents two teams which have had a ton of trouble in Pac-12 action as Washington and Washington State are a combined 5-23. Pride is on the line as Markelle Fultz and his Huskies face double-double man, Josh Hawkinson and the Cougars, who are coming off of a rare victory over Arizona State in convincing fashion. Can the Cougars make it 2 in a row at home as this game is a pick-'em?

Washington vs Washington State "The Lesser of Two Evils"

That's what we might be looking at when looking at the Cougars as the Huskies have lost 9 games in a row. The only case that can be made for Washington is that they lost to a very good Arizona Wildcats team by 8 points and Markelle Fultz is an offensive machine. That said, with Fultz in the lineup, Washington has been unable to win games. They also lost to the same ASU team that Washington State recently defeated.

Fantastic Freshman

The huge case that can be made for the Huskies is that the super freshman Fultz is back in the lineup after a two game absence. Since returning, he's averaged 22.5 points and 5 assists while making his presence shown on the defensive end and he's also a 3-point threat. Look for Markelle Fultz to give Washington State everything that he's got as this game should be very close.

Much Needed Win For WSU

As for the Cougars, they haven't been much better than the Huskies as they recently broke a 5 game losing streak with an 86-71 victory over head coach Bobby Hurley's Arizona State Sun Devils.

Washington State got off to a very slow start, but they outscored ASU 44-23 in the 2nd half to finally get a much needed "w". The Cougars shot a sizzling 59.6 % from the field as they controlled the boards with Josh Hawkinson leading the way with 14 points, 15 rebounds, and 5 assists. Hawkinson has has an outstanding collegiate career with 3 consecutive seasons of averaging a double-double. 

Look for Hawkinson and his Cougars to finish off the season with a "feel good win" at home as the betting odds are quite appealing.
