The Washington State Cougars should have a full compliment of players at the Pac-10 Tournament in Los Angeles as they take on the Washington Huskies in a quarterfinal matchup on Thursday night. Klay Thompson, suspended for the Cougars final regular season game last Saturday, was reinstated earlier in the week and is expected to start on Thursday. Additionally, Reggie Moore, sidelined with an ankle injury sustained last week, has been practicing with the team and looks like he’s ready to go.
The Spokesman-Reviews Vince Grippi tweeted the news on Moore’s injury and status for the Pac-10 Tournament.
Some WSU injury news. Reggie Moore practiced Wednesday is expected to play tomorrow against Washington.
Moore was a big reason the Cougars were able to complete a season sweep of the Huskies, creating off the dribble while facilitating the Washington State offense. In the two meetings, Moore scored 28 and nine assists. Without Venoy Overton, who’s suspended for the Pac-10 Tournament, Moore should have room to roam against the Huskies on Thursday.
While Washington State comes into the tournament healthy and ready to go, the news hasn’t been so good for Washington. The Huskies will be missing Overton and may not have the services of Justin Holiday, who’s dealing with a concussion sustained last Saturday.
The Huskies and Cougars hit the floor at Staples Center in the Pac-10 Tournament on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. For more on the matchup, check out our Pac-10 Tournament StoryStream. To connect with Washington State fans, visit SB Nation’s CougCenter.
