Said to be the loudest crowd of the year, Wells Fargo Arena was full of fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students from around the valley for "Sparky's Kids to College Field Trip." And they were in for a treat.
Hitting six points in the first two minutes, Arizona State was off to a fast start and kept this momentum for the remainder of the game. Holding UCLA at 33% field goal accuracy and denying all attempts to catch up by hitting a three, the Sun Devils dominated the floor all afternoon.
Though leading by 23 points at the half, the Devils refused to let an over confident attitude interrupt their mindset. With their heads in the game, the ladies continued to consistently hit free throws and snuck in some lay-ups along the way. With just five minutes into the second half ASU poured in 13 points, while the Bruins chipped in a mere six.
Throughout the game the Lady Devils were able to up their field goal percentage from 56% accuracy at the half, to 63% and held an average of 71% accuracy for free throws.
Scoring in the double digits, were Danielle Orsillo with 16 points, followed by teammates Aubree Johnson with 15, Dymond Simon 14, Jill Noe 13, and Briann January 10.
This win vaulted ASU to a 17-2 season record, placing them 2nd in Pac-10 Conference standings and ranking them 10th in the nation according polls released by the Associated Press and USA Today.
Next up, the Arizona State Sun Devils will face off against USC at Wells Fargo Arena this Sunday at 3p.m. MT.
