Cougs Earn First Pac-10 Win of the Season

Washington State, behind a 29-point performance from Klay Thompson, notched its first Pac-10 victory of the season over Oregon State 84-70.

The Cougs, 11-4, now look for revenge Saturday against Oregon (7:30 FSN). Last year on New Year's Eve, the Ducks sent the Cougs spinning into oblivion after a 91-89 double-overtime defeat. The Cougs, 10-2 before the Oregon game, lost ten of their final twelve games.

Oregon not only started Wazzu's tailspin, but ended it . The last two games of the 2010 season were defeats in Eugene, and then the opening round of the Pac-10 tournament, to Oregon.

The Ducks have won three straight against the Cougars. Fourth time's the charm?
