Scott Suggs says he's not sure what happened to his knee, which will keep him out probably two weeks (Lorenzo Romar says he'll definitely be back for the Pac-10 Tournament).

Venoy Overton says he has his legs back.

The Cougars might want to win today at ASU if they want to steer clear of that extra Pac-10 Tournament game.
