Huskies drop Devils

The final score may be deceiving, but the stats definitely paint a very realistic picture. In the first half ASU committed 12 turnovers and saw Washington converted over 61 percent of their shots from the field. A solid effort in the second half wasn't enough for the Sun Devils to climb out of the sizeable hole they dug themselves on the road as the Huskies prevail 77-69.

Arizona State (5-18, 4-10 Pac-12) certainly held their own in the first several minutes of the game and were tied at 13-13 at the 13:05 mark. However a 19-6 run in the 7:51 minutes of the period gave Washington (18-8, 11-3) a 44-26 halftime lead which in essence sealed the game's fate.

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.
