LOS ANGELES -- The Washington State men's basketball team opens the Pac-10 Tournament against Washington on Thursday in Los Angeles.

The Cougars and Huskies are scheduled to tip-off at 8:30pm. You can watch the game live on FSN. We'll also have full highlights on KREM 2 News and KREM.com.

WSU swept the regular season series against UW. The Cougars took down the Huskies 87-80 in Pullman on January 30th, and then beat Washington again 80-69 on February 27th.

Oddsmakers don't think the Cougs can do it again. They originally pegged the Huskies as a six-point favorite, but that's since moved to five-and-a-half-points in most cases.

Washington will be without guard Venoy Overton. He was charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor on Tuesday, and suspended for the Pac-10 Tournament. On the other side, WSU's Klay Thompson will play against UW. He missed the regular season finale against UCLA after an arrest for marijuana possession.
