Washington State guard Reggie Moore is expected to make his first start of the season on Wednesday against Gonzaga, according to Cougars coach Ken Bone.
Moore missed five games with a wrist injury and had 10 points and three assists coming off the bench in Friday's loss to Kansas State.
Moore's return to the lineup means that Faisal Aden is expected to come off the bench against Gonzaga after averaging 18.7 points per game while filling in for Moore.
Aden has earned more playing time, as Bone indicated that the junior college transfer who is third in the Pac-10 in scoring, could get starts alongside conference scoring leader Klay Thompson (21.2 ppg).
"There's times it's nice to have Klay and Faisal on the floor together," Bone said. "With another weapon out there, it provides balance to what we're trying to accomplish on the offensive end."
