SPOKANE, Wash. - Washington State would be having a good basketball season, if the games were just 20 minutes long.

Three times in their past five games, the Cougars (15-10, 5-8 Pac-10) held halftime leads and then were blown out in the second half. If they had won those three road games, they would be tied for first in the Pacific-10.

At Cal last Saturday, the Cougars led 45-34 at halftime, only to be outscored 52-25 in the second half for the loss. At Stanford last Thursday, the Cougars led 33-18 at halftime, only to be outscored 42-25 in the second half. Against archrival Washington on Jan. 30, they led 40-36 at halftime, only to be outscored 56-24 in the second half.
