ASU rises just in time against USC

TEMPE -- Even though there were so many reasons for Arizona State to look past Southern California on Sunday, the Sun Devils swear they did not. They pointed to unusually poor shooting that led to some distracted defense for a closer-than-expected 64-59 victory over USC -- the worst team in the league, coming off a blowout in Tucson, its two top scorers out -- on Sunday at Wells...

Sun Devils get hot late, turn back USC

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Tra Holder and Jonathan Gilling sank 3-pointers in the final two minutes, and Arizona State rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit to pull out a 64-59 victory over USC on Sunday night.

To be great, Arizona has to solve case of disappearing defense

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona, this is your final wake-up call. That's three losses. That's three hard-to-figure losses. That's three losses to teams that rank no higher than No. 69 in the RPI. Gathering up the records of the other nine teams in the AP top 10, you can find only one loss to a team rated so poorly in the RPI -- Wisconsin's defeat at No. 125 Rutgers. Three losses. At UNLV...

ASU fouls ups, falls to Oregon in OT

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Two days after asserting himself going to the basket, Shaquielle McKissic did the same thing from 3-point range Friday. But his career-high six 3-pointers, including one that sent the game into overtime, were not enough to offset Arizona State's poor three throw shooting in a 68-67 loss to Oregon at Wells Fargo Arena. ASU was 7 of 15 from the foul line, 4 of 11 in...

Rising Sun Devils blitz Oregon State

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It took time, as Arizona State coaches warned that it would because of the influx of new talent, But the Sun Devils appear to have found their identity, just as the conference play nears the midpoint. It showed in a variety of ways in Wednesday's 73-55 victory over Oregon State at Wells Fargo Arena. The Sun Devils made the extra pass, which led to easier looks from...

Stanford halts ASU's brief win streak

It was that kind of night for Arizona State on Saturday. Stanford reserve Robert Cartwright's lob pass from the right wing to the low post sailed over center Stefan Nastic's head and directly into the basket in the second half. The Cardinal also hit most of their intended shots in a 89-70 victory at Maples Pavilion. ASU (10-10, 2-5 Pac-12) sank eight 3-pointers in the first half...

ASU's Barnes, Gilling embrace 'team'

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Of course Jonathan Gilling and Bo Barnes would rather spend more time on the floor. Especially this year, their last at Arizona State. But neither makes a big deal out of it, resolved to consider the bigger picture. "To me, it's always doing what's best for the team," Barnes said. Seniors Barnes and Gilling are the Sun Devils' sixth men 'A' and 'B', and at no time...

New-look Sun Devils ready for No. 8 Wildcats, Pac-12 play

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Coach Herb Sendek uses an automobile analogy to describe the preseason changes Arizona State went through while it prepared for this weekend's start to Pac-12 play in Tucson. "It has the feel that you are driving a stick shift for the first time," Sendek said. The ride is getting a lot smoother, though, for the Sun Devils. After several iterations, and with the caveat...

Questions abound after ASU's triple-OT loss to Lehigh

TEMPE -- Two seconds away from the first quadruple-overtime game in school history, Arizona State got as good a shot as it could have hoped for, a Jonathan Gilling uncontested 3-pointer from 22 feet on the left wing. But the shot was long, leaving Lehigh with an 84-81 victory at Wells Fargo Arena on Saturday and leaving the Sun Devils with a myriad of questions just two weeks from...

Sun Devils sloppy but successful in second game

TEMPE -- Games like these are pretty much decided when they are scheduled. The incongruence in the programs is apparent. Arizona State made the NCAA Tournament last season while Bethune-Cookman was 7-25, losing 17 in a row and playing a schedule that included 47 days between home games. While the Sun Devils' 49-39 victory at Wells Fargo on Monday was pretty much preordained, the...
