09.Feb.2012 Basketball: Washington State @ Oregon State
There’s not much to talk about in this game. The Beavs lost an uninspired game at Pullman, and now they’re looking for redemption.
Motum may be the man to watch for Wazzu, but the bit players should struggle in Corvallis.
If you all hadn’t noticed, our boys have shrugged off two heart-breaking losses and a pity party to bounce back with a 4-1 record since… with three of those five games on the road.
And now the Beavs get to revisit four of their six losses on more favorable terms… with some confidence.
The line for tonight is -9.5 Beavs. I’ll take that and more.
Beavs 87 – Cougs 69
Agree with JackBeav on this one. Tonight is all about the home crowd and momentum (i.e. confidence). Every time the Beavs find their stride they seem to fritter it away with uninspired, lazy efforts. If they play any defense they'll win this one by 20, but the Beavs can't be counted on to play defense. Given the recent winning, tonight's crowd tonight could be the biggest of the year. Is that enough to will them into playing a complete game? It's hard to have faith in anything Corvallis.
