I’m leaning towards Washington State here. Both of these teams are playing well right now, but I think you could argue that Washington State has more momentum and has had a game to shake off the rust. Oregon is a solid group with a lot of upperclassmen that should be ready and raring to go here, and with it being basically win or go home for both of these teams from an NCAA tournament perspective, I think we see a tight game. Give me the Cougars and the points here.
