PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State starting center Robbie Cowgill will be sidelined for at least a month after breaking his collarbone in practice.

Cowgill, a 6-foot-10, 207-pound sophomore who started 19 games at center last season, fractured his clavicle while diving for a loose ball in practice last Saturday.

It was not immediately known if Cowgill could return for the Cougars' season opener against California-Riverside Nov. 19th.

Cowgill, from Austin, Texas, averaged six points per game last season.
