That's the first name to escape OSU coach Craig Robinson's mouth when asked about Utah and the problems the Utes can present other teams.

"The one thing we have to do is prevent Washburn from going crazy," Robinson said. "He has the ability to get hot and score points in bunches. We can't allow that to happen."

Washburn and Jordan Loveridge figure to play a big role against the Beavers. Jeremy Olsen and Dallin Bachynski figure to receive good minutes off the bench as well. If Utah can impose its will inside like it did against Colorado, it will make things interesting in Corvallis.
