Cougar hoops: A practice scare on the Palouse
Taylor Rochestie, the senior floor leader of the Cougars, should be ready for Saturday's game at 16th-ranked Washington (2:30 p.m., FSN). Rochestie leads the Cougars in points (13.3), assists (4.7) and minutes played (36.6) per game.
Rochestie left the practice gym in obvious pain. Coach Tony Bennett, even before X-ray results came back, said the injury did not appear serious.
"He probably just popped it out and it popped back in," Bennett said.Bennett said Rochestie, a left-hander, aggravated a finger injury on his right hand that he suffered Feb. 21 at UCLA.
Rochestie scored a career-high 33 points that game, and he sank a game-winning 3-pointer in overtime last Saturday against Arizona State.
Bennett joked about having "sausage fingers" due to all the finger injuries he suffered as a player. Rochestie has been playing with his injured finger taped since the UCLA game.
