TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Jahii Carson had 20 points and six assists, Eric Jacobsen added 16 points, and Arizona State used a dominating defensive stretch in the second half to beat Hartford 71-63 Wednesday night. Arizona State (7-1) traded baskets with the Hawks from a hot-shooting first half until picking up the pressure midway through the second.

Carrick Felix added 11 points and 11 rebounds for Arizona State, which shot 56 percent to overcome an 11 for 23 night from the free-throw line.
