Opening Spread: Arizona -15
Opening Total: 140

Sean Miller’s Arizona squad took care of business by 17 at Pullman on Feb. 1, and should similarly dispatch the Cougs in the rematch. ‘Cats length was able to unnerve top Wazzu scorer 6-5 wing C.J. Elleby (18.6 points per game) in first meeting, causing his worst shooting night of season. Elleby was 2-of-12 from the field and Washington State made only three triples all evening against the harassing Arizona defense. Miller’s all-star frosh brigade now has almost a full season of college ball under their belts, with emerging 6-11 Zeke Nnaji recently recording back-to-back 21-point efforts in wins over Cal and Stanford. Recent offensive struggles for Washington State have contributed to seven of the Cougars’ last ten games going under the total.

Arizona vs. Washington State Pick: Arizona 77 – Washington State 54
