Six months ago, Promise Amukamara was famous mostly for being the younger sister of NFL cornerback Prince Amukamara. These days, the Arizona State freshman is making a name for herself in her own right. As a guard on ASU’s women’s basketball team, Amukamara has been a big part of the Sun Devils’ success so far this season. After finishing third in the Pac-12 last season, the Devils look like they could be ready to up the ante and win their conference.

The Lady Devils can move a step closer to winning the Pac-12 when they take on the UCLA Bruins at Wells Fargo Arena. The Bruins are dwelling in the Pac-12 cellar this season, so ASU should have a win in the bag.
