The hosts were leading comfortably in double digits for a long stretch in the second stanza, but with just over six minutes remaining in the contest and Washington leading 71-49, a 20-6 run by the visitors created a more respectable final score and perhaps something for the Sun Devils to build on as the regular season in nearing a close.
Carrick Felix paced ASU with 13 points. Chris Colvin added 10 points, as did Jordan Bachynski who also had a team-high seven rebounds. The Sun Devils shot 49 percent from the field but also committed 18 turnovers and were just 11-21 from the free throw line. Washington's Terrance Ross led all players with 18 points.
Next, ASU will travel to Pullman for a 6 p.m. Saturday tip-off contest versus Washington State.
