How big would an upset win over UCLA be? The Cougars haven't beaten the Bruins at Friel Court since the 1992-93 season, when WSU freshman Klay Thompson was 3 years old and coach Tony Bennett was playing for the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA. The Cougars will need a big game from center Aron Baynes, from their crowd and from senior Taylor Rochestie, who will be matched against Darren Collison, one of the top point guards in the nation.
--C Aron Baynes scored 17 points on 6-for-7 shooting from the field and added 12 rebounds in the win over Oregon State. He topped that with 19 points and 12 rebounds against Oregon, his first two double-doubles of the season. His performance against the Ducks also included his first career 3-point basket.
--G Taylor Rochestie had 14 points and eight assists against OSU, then scored a career-high 30 points vs. Oregon. He is averaging 21.0 points over the past four games and has scored in double digits nine straight games.
--G Klay Thompson had 12 points and five assists against Oregon State, then had 15 points at Oregon and already has cracked the Cougars' all-time freshman top-10 scoring list.
