Sun Devils clamp down, crush Cal

Arizona State followed its first Pac-12 victory with a resounding one. The Sun Devils dominated California for the final 35 minutes in a 79-44 rout at Haas Pavilion on Thursday night, using a 22-0 run to cruise to a victory that featured more accurate 3-point shooting, strong contributions from the bench and a defense that took perimeter-oriented Cal out of its offense. Reserve guard...

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...

Barnes, McKissic deliever ASU's first Pac-12 win

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Bo Barnes and Shaquielle McKissic played a shooting game at practice Friday and McKissic was not afraid to acknowledge the results. "He kind of drug me up and down the court," McKissic said with a smile, "so I expected him to make all of them that he took" Saturday. Barnes came close, and what he was not making on one end he seemed to be affecting on the other. Barnes...

Freshmen Holder, Justice to handle point guard for Sun Devils

TEMPE, Ariz. -- After a brief experiment, Arizona State is back where it began the season, with true freshmen Tra Holder and Kodi Justice at point guard. The return to youth is not without its benefits -- both Holder and Justice have a good feel for the position, and because of that the Sun Devils' turnovers could diminish. That has been their Achilles' heel in an 8-8 start that...

Sun Devils tinker, still cannot find winning formula

Arizona State continued to tinker with its starting lineup and while Saturday's result again did not translate, the Sun Devils appear to be getting closer to a finding the right mix. It has not been easy. Coach Herb Sendek went back to a guard rotation that he used for the first 11 games of the season, but it did not immediately help when Oregon took a 59-56 Pac-12 victory at Matthew...

ASU headed back to the drawing board?

Two days after Arizona State coach Herb Sendek said his team was past the point of reinventing itself, Sendek was back to his tinkering ways. Forced into more tweaks by an inefficient offense Thursday night at Oregon State, Sendek turned to freshmen point guards Tra Holder and Kodi Justice after early turnovers put the Sun Devils in an immediate hole. The maneuvering did not change...

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...

Sun Devils might have found a fit

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State appears to have found a rotation it can live with, just in time for the opening of Pac-12 play. At the very least, the Sun Devils found a rotation with which they can win. Gerry Blakes made his second straight start at point guard and second-time starters Roosevelt Scott and Savon Goodman joined Blakes in scoring in double figures as the Sun Devils beat...

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...

Blakes has shown some of both in his first few weeks at Arizona State. Blakes is the first of ASU's four junior college transfers to make a scoring impact this season, and his career-high...
