Its tough for a team to carry on when it loses its brightest star. Remember when N Sync fell apart after Justin Timberlake split?
If youre curious how the ASU Mens Basketball team will respond after its best player James Harden bolted to the NBA, then we suggest you take in the Devils home Pac-10 season opener against the Washington Huskies arguably the strongest team in the conference during a special Friday-night game at Wells Fargo Arena. A win could help ASU prove its legitimacy to the NCAA Tournament Committee when entrants are selected in March. More importantly, a butt kicking would help the Devils prove to themselves that they can do it without Harden.
