GAME THREAD: No. 21 WSU at Oregon

Posted by Jeff Nusser on February 16, 2008

Cougars (19-5 overall, 7-5 Pac-10) at Oregon (15-9, 6-6)

MacArthur Court (Eugene, Ore.), 6 p.m. PT

Okay, I’m filling on for Nuss on this one, and it is going to be brief. Oregon is no mystery. They live and die by the jumper. If the Cougars can control the tempo of the game and minimize any rhythm the Ducks can gather, hopefully they can keep their shooters under control.

Keys to the game: Contain Maarty Leunen. In the last contest Leunen scored 20 and collected 13 boards. If they box him out and don’t leave him open the Cougs should be fine.

Rebound that basketball. Second chance points have been a bugaboo for the Cougs lately. They need to win the rebounding battle tonight.

Get off to a fast start. Another problem the Cougars have had this season. This is an absolute must in order to keep the fans out of the game. Mac Court is a mad house that needs to be silenced.

Pray that Tajuan Porter doesn’t go nuts. When this kid gets hot, he’s dangerous. But, he’s totally hit or miss. Lets just hope that tonight he’s miss.

Enjoy the game. I’m going on date with my wife so I wont get to watch it live. But, if you knew how hot my wife was, you’d take the date too.
