No. 1: Wear 'em out: With Stanford having a quick turnaround from last night to this afternoon, it would make sense that UW might emply a little more pressure to try to wear down the Cardinal, especially the guards.

33-21 UCLA at the half. The Cougars are shooting only 20% from the field. The Cougars played the Bruins pretty mush even in the second half but were never able to make much of a dent in the lead. WSU's hopes of a third straight NCAA tournament appearance ended with the loss, but chances are the NIT or CBI will come calling for the 17-15 team.
