The fourth and final game of the opening night of the 2014 Pac-12 Tournament pits the No. 6 Stanford Cardinal (19-11) against the No. 11 Washington State Cougars (11-20).
Stanford took both of the regular season meetings between the two programs winning 80-48 on Jan. 15 and on the road 69-56 one month later Feb. 15.
Nearly one month after the teams last played, not much has changed as the Cougars have dropped eight of their last nine games and 13 of their last 15 games, but they are coming off a highly-surprising 73-55 win over the UCLA Bruins who are the two seed in the tournament in their regular season finale.
Stanford has dropped three of their of their last four and their lone win was a one-point win vs. Utah who only has two wins on the road this year. Nevertheless, Stanford is heavily-favored for a reason and should advance to the second round of action on Thursday.
