In the second half the tide completely turned. The Trojans outscored the Lady Sun Devils 40-29 and came dangerously close to completing the comeback. ASU was certainly hampered today when Dymond Simon, who led ASU with 13 points, left the game with a concussion. However her fellow senior Becca Tobin scored 10 of her 12 points in the second half with her last two being the game winner with just 24 seconds left on the clock. Tobin added 5 rebounds and 2 steals. Her presence under the basket allowed her team to control the boards and strengthen the Devils' interior defense. ASU was also 14 of 15 from the free throw line which naturally came in handy in such a tight contest.
ASU returns home on Thursday to play the #4 ranked Stanford Cardinal. Tip-off from Wells Fargo Arena is 6:00pm.
