Hardly anyone would have guessed that, with the season 11 days old, WASHINGTON STATE would be the only unbeaten team on the West Coast. But the Cougars were, after taking Montana twice, 92-62 and 84-78. Stanford lost its first, to SAN JOSE STATE 58-57, and CALIFORNIA split a pair with NEBRASKA, winning 87-71 and then losing 70-68.

Utah and independent COLORADO STATE were still undefeated in the mountain country. The Utes smashed Centenary 98-81 and St. Mary's 95-52, while deliberate Colorado State beat Arizona State 84-63 and California State 93-84.
