03.Feb.2011 Basketball: Washington @ Oregon State
At 6pm tonight, the Beavs tip off the second half of their season versus the Huskies. Yay? Since we all know the game will be a blowout, I'm not going to waste time writing about it. This afternoon I am getting a crown on a left molar, and I'm left wondering which is going to be more painful: the tooth or watching this game. Anyway, I copied the writeup below from the official site. It will give you an idea what to expect tonight in the event that the word "Washington" didn't already paint the picture.
