Score: 66 - 67
Money Line: -113 Washington State
Pittsburgh at Washington State 10:00 ET
Cougars over Panthers- This is the first of a best 2 of 3 series that will determine the College Basketball Invitational Championship. After dropping their opening round PAC-12 playoff game Washington State has won three straight CBI Tournament games including two road contests. Pittsburgh was a Top-5 ranked team during the per-season and didn't even make the NIT much less the NCAA Big Dance even after winning two Big East Tournament games. The Panthers had two walk over wins at home against Wofford and Princeton before winning at Butler in overtime 68-62. The Cougars have played well at home the second half of the year going 7-3 ATS in their last 10 as hosts. Win or lose Washington State will be making a trop to Pittsburgh for Game 2 Wednesday and Game Three if necessary on Saturday. Still, this one is so much more important to the Cougars. Take WASHINGTON STATE!
