We start with highlighting the play of James Keefe and Jrue Holiday. JK looked good with some extended minutes as Dragovic was limited by some foul trouble. Keefe played good defense, grabbed six rebounds, hit a three and a shot-clock buzzer beater. Jrue played much better defense and again showed flashes of his potential. Let's hope these are good signs as JK and JH are going to be key as we finish out the Pac-10 Tournament and head into the big dance.
The Bruins started out hot, jumping out to a 25-5 lead with under 10 minutes left in the first half. Their play dropped off a bit and the shots started to fall for WSU, but the Bruins maintained a double-digit lead until less than a minute remained in the game. Five out of six freethrows down the stretch sealed the win.
