HEAD COACH CHARLIE OWEN ON THE RACE: 'I expect Washington State to be fast. All of our Pac-10 competition should really be tough. We don't have a soft race on the whole schedule.'
'We've always been pretty close with Washington State, so it will be interesting. In the fall, we beat them, but it's been a long time since the fall. Washington State raced last weekend (against Gonzaga) and did very well. We raced a few weeks ago and did pretty well, but didn't win. It'll be a good test for us and should help get us ready for racing in San Diego a week later.
'We're just looking forward to our first race against a Pac-10 team - the season's here and we've got to be ready to go. We've had a race, but it's still very early still in the season. We're not to our full speed yet.'
