Player of the Week
Thompson is the first two-time “Player of the Week” winner this season. His performance in Hawaii surely opened the eyes of some of his critics. Thompson finished the week averaging 26.3 points, 3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.3 steals per contest. He was 25 of 46 from the field good for 54.3 percent and made 13 of his 25 attempts from the three point line (52%). Thompson has eclipsed the 20 point mark in eight of Washington States’ 12 games this season. Had the Cougars finished off the Butler game with a solid second half and a win, they would likely be the Pac-10s lone ranked team entering conference play.
With conference play set to begin, here's a hot and cold for each of the teams in the Pac-Ten through the non-conference portion of the schedule.
Best Win: North Carolina State (RPI 65)
Worst Loss: Brigham Young (RPI 3)
