SAY THIS ABOUT Washington State senior Abe Lodwick: He saved the best for last. If the bomber from Bend continues the torrid pace he's established, both shooting and rebounding, since the Cougars entered the College Basketball Invitational four wins ago then the oddsmakers who have installed Pitt as a 9 1/2-point favorite today in Game 2 of the championship series figure to look silly.

Lodwick turned in a career night in all phases of the game.
Each day leading up to the Cougars' final regular-season home game against Washington, an interview with a senior will be posted to this website. Friday's Q&A is with Abe Lodwick, a forward from Bend, Ore.
SPOKANE – The season was just six games old, but Abe Lodwick sensed that his Washington State basketball team was flirting with disaster. The Cougars had capped an 0-3 showing at the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif., by blowing a 14-point lead in the final seven minutes of a 64-63 loss to underwhelming UC Riverside.
