ASU Sun Devils Lose 20th Game Of Season as Arizona Wins Its 20th
We didn't go by the Wells Fargo Arena last night for Arizona State's 66-57 loss to UCLA, but we know a few diehards who tells us that the announced attendance of 5,477 was exaggerated by a whole lot.
The game itself was a microcosm of ASU's lost season--a nice effort by a sadly outmanned bunch that was done in by turnovers (18 this time), lack of a bonafide inside game and no one to turn to on the bench.
The Wildcats overcame yet another sluggish start to take out USC 70-54 in Tucson to win its sixth game in the last seven. Arizona has cobbled together 20 wins this season, but only one over a Top 50 team, which does not bode well for a berth in the upcoming NCAA national tournament unless they win at least three or four more games.
