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...

Luke Fischer scores 19 in Marquette debut, helps beat Arizona State

  Center Luke Fischer had 19 points and nine rebounds in his first game for Marquette, and Jajuan Johnson added 22 points to spark the Golden Eagles' 78-71 win Tuesday night over Arizona State. The 6-foot-11 Fischer, a transfer from Indiana, provided a sorely-needed presence in the middle for the undersized and short-handed Golden Eagles (5-4). He blocked five shots and helped alter...

Freshman Kodi Justice leads ASU past UNLV

 TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State cannot replace departed point guard Jahii Carson in kind, of course. The quickness that Carson used to push and penetrate is as hard to find as it is to defend.  In true freshman Kodi Justice, however, the Sun Devils just might have found Carson's successor.  The sample size is minuscule -- seven games, two starts.  But it is tantalizing.  "In...

JC transfer Blakes transitioning well to ASU

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Gerry Blakes relayed a quote from ASU coach Herb Sendek on his Twitter feed. "Consistency," Sendek tweeted at the start of the season," is more important than occasional greatness."

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...

Carson makes his point for Suns

PHOENIX -- Jahii Carson learned to quit sweatin' the small stuff years ago. While tearing up the club-ball circuit as an East Valley grade-school phenom, it was posited he'd never be big enough. He wouldn't be big enough to dominate at the high-school level. By the time he finished at Mesa High, Jahii was best player in Arizona, hitting opponents for 32 points per game...
