HUSKIES TRY TO STAY HOT AGAINST RIVAL COUGARS
Mon, 14 Feb 2011 10:31 AM EST

WASHINGTON HUSKIES (15-4, 7-1 in Pac-10)

at WASHINGTON STATE COUGARS (14-6, 4-4 in Pac-1-0)

Tip-off: Sunday, 10:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Washington -4, Total: 150

No. 18 Washington looks to continue its fast start in Pac-10 play when it visits rival Washington State on Sunday night.

The high-scoring Huskies have won nine of their past 10 games (7-3 ATS), including three in a row. At 7-1 in the Pac-10, they’re off to their best conference start since the 1986-87 season. UW’s only loss during that stretch was a 58-56 setback at Stanford on Jan. 13. Since that defeat, Washington has collected double-digit victories at Cal (92-71), versus Arizona (85-68) and against Arizona State (88-75). The Huskies are second in the nation in scoring (87.1 PPG), ninth in FG Pct. (48.8%) and eighth in assists (17.7 APG). They’ve scored at least 80 points in seven of their past 10 games, including three straight contests. Washington is led by Isaiah Thomas (16.9 PPG, 5.8 APG, 36.4% three-pointers), who has hit double-figures in 18 of 19 games this season, including the past 17 games. Thomas scored 19 points with eight assists and six rebounds in their most recent victory over the Sun Devils on Jan. 22, while Matthew Bryan-Amaning (16.2 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 58.9 FG%) tallied a career-best 30 points on 11-of-16 shooting to go along with nine rebounds. After scoring only eight points in the loss to the Cardinal, Bryan-Amaning has exploded for 70 combined points in his past three contests. Justin Holiday (12.5 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 41.9% three-pointers) hasn’t been as sharp. He was just 2-of-7 from the field versus ASU and finished with five points, which ended his double-digit scoring output at three straight games. Odds.

Washington State hopes to rebound from a close 65-63 loss its last time out at Arizona on Jan. 22, its fifth defeat in nine games. Klay Thompson, who leads the Pac-10 in scoring with 22.2 PPG, did not score in double-figures for the first time this season, and finished with just nine points on 4-of-16 shooting. Thompson, who also averages 5.5 RPG, 4.4 APG and shoots 42.8% on threes, is 20-for-52 from the field in his past three games. DeAngelo Casto (10.9 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 1.9 BPG, 55.9 FG%) picked up the slack by scoring a team-high 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting. He also had six rebounds and four blocks in the loss to the Wildcats and has scored 42 points combined in the past two games after scoring 36 combined in the previous four contests. Faisal Aden, second on the team in scoring with 14.1 PPG, has been bothered by soreness in his knee, but is expected to play on Sunday. Aden sat out the 78-61 win against Arizona State on Jan. 20, but returned to the lineup versus Arizona, scoring just five points (2-of-7) in 17 minutes of action. The Cougars are 1-2 versus teams that were ranked at the time they played them this season, but all three games were competitive. They fell at home to Kansas State, 63-58, on Dec. 3 and earned a win over Baylor, 77-71, on Dec. 23 before falling to Arizona by two last weekend. Scores.

Washington holds a 171-98 advantage in the all-time series, including a 71-61 edge at Washington State. The Huskies have won the past four meetings (3-0-1 ATS) including sweeping the season series in 2009-10 with a 92-64 rout at Seattle and a 59-52 road victory. WSU holds a slight 14-12 ATS edge in the series since 1997 and is 6-2 ATS at home this season, out-shooting its opponents 49.3% to 35.8% in Pullman this season. These two FoxSheets trends side with Washington State as the pick here.

Lorenzo Romar is 5-19 ATS (20.8%, -15.9 Units) after scoring 80 points or more 3 straight games as the coach of WASHINGTON. The average score was WASHINGTON 78.7, OPPONENT 73.0 – (Rating = 3*).

Play On – A home team (WASHINGTON STATE) – off an upset loss to a conference rival as a favorite against opponent after scoring 80 points or more in a win over a conference rival. (64-32 since 1997.) (66.7%, +28.8 units. Rating = 2*).

The past four games in this series have all finished Under the total, and this highly-rated FoxSheets trend backs a fifth straight Under. Las Vegas odds.

WASHINGTON is 8-0 UNDER (+8.0 Units) in road games after scoring 80 points or more 2 straight games over the last 2 seasons. The average score was WASHINGTON 67.3, OPPONENT 64.7 – (Rating = 3*).
