No. 1 -- Momentum. The Ducks have it, thanks to an 82-57 whipping of conference-leading Washington on Thursday. The key will be not to lose it against the Cougars, who are coming off an upset of Oregon State and with payback in mind for a 92-75 loss to Oregon on Dec. 29. No. 2 -- F Carlos Emory . The reserve has given the Ducks a huge lift off the bench the past two weeks, with averages of 13.7 ppg and 7.6 rpg in three of the past four games, including a career-high 16 points Thursday against the Huskies. No. 3 -- Rebounds. The Ducks have outrebounded the Pac-12's top two rebounding teams in back-to-back games (39-38 vs. Washington, 37-32 vs. Colorado). A similar effort Saturday could lead to a dominating performance against WSU, which is ninth in conference in rebounding (33.1 rpg).
