Noon hoops: Turnovers plague Cougs in loss to Oklahoma, rough week for the Pac-12

Watched the Cougs game late last night, fighting off the effects of a turkey induced coma. For a half WSU looked as good it has all season, and in the second half the Cougs turned it over like a girls JV team and got rolled.

Here's one of Ken Bone's postgame comments ...

“Oklahoma really had their way with us in the second half. They executed well on the offensive end. They were very efficient defensively and played with a lot of energy, and took us out of the game. I thought they did a nice job of maintaining ball pressure. There were some times when we coughed it on our own. We didn’t handle the ball well or make complete passes. They were relentless with their effort, we put our tail between our legs when things didn’t go well, which surprised me as we have a lot of upperclassmen and we need to bounce back from certain possessions and still be able to compete. I think we got frustrated."

Looking for a breakdown, Jeff Nusser at Coug Center provides a pretty good recap of the game.

Arizona State continued the Pac-12's terrible Feast Week. The Sun Devils, who are still without Jahii Carson, looked inept offensively in a 55-44 loss to Fairfield.

Like WSU, Arizona State had issues with turnovers ...

Down in the Bahamas, Utah was crushed by Harvard, 75-47. Obviously, Utah is very, very bad this year as head coach Larry Krstykowiak brought in a bunch of new players. And when they Utes play ASU, they might as well use real peach baskets. But Harvard is really good. The Crimson has a veteran team that can really play.
