WSU 75, UW 47, Jan. 20, 2007: The Huskies learned shortly before tipoff that Spencer Hawes would be out with a sprained ankle and played like a team that figured it didn't have a chance. WSU led 34-23 at halftime and cruised behind 20 points from Derrick Low.
WSU 65, UW 61, Feb. 14, 2007: It was a one-point game with 23 seconds left when UW guard Justin Dentmon missed on a drive to the hoop, and the Cougars then put the game away at the foul line. UW missed its last eight shots, none taken by Hawes, who was unable to get a shot the last six minutes. Taylor Rochestie had one of his first big games for WSU with 16 points.
WSU 74, UW 64, March 8, 2007: The game was tied with just over six minutes left before the Cougars closed with an 18-8 run, hitting 13 of 16 free throws. Rochestie led the Cougars with 20 points.

WSU 76, UW 73 (double overtime), March 8, 2008: In another tight game featuring 10 ties and nine lead changes, neither team led by more than six.

UW's Jon Brockman suffered a sprained ankle with 1:56 left in the second OT and didn't return.
