Things went from bad to worse for ASU in the second stanza, as the visitors went scoreless for the first eight minutes, until walk-on Dave Whitmore registered his first ever basket as a Sun Devil. At that point the score was 49-23 and Utah was content to trade baskets the rest of the afternoon en route to their second conference win.
Carrick Felix paced ASU with 13 points but was the only starter in double figures for the maroon and gold. The Sun Devils did actually get some solid contributions from the bench, as center Jordan Bachynski recorded a career high 10 points to along with seven rebounds. Forward Kyle Cain added 10 points as well and registered six rebounds. Cedric Martin led four Utah players in double figures with 17 points.
ASU returns home Thursday evening to host Washington. Tip-off is 6:30 pm at Wells Fargo Arena.
