It’s rare that ASU’s men’s basketball team has a true star, but it’s fair to say that the Sun Devils have one this year in point guard Jahii Carson. In the last two decades, only three Sun Devils (James Harden, Ike Diogu, and Eddie House) have been selected in the NBA draft, but Carson seems virtually certain to join that list this June. The redshirt sophomore seems certain to go pro at the end of the season, but, in the meantime, he has ASU on the bubble to make the NCAA tournament.
If you want to see Carson while he’s still wearing maroon and gold, one of your last chances is Thursday, February 6, when the Sun Devils host Oregon State at Wells Fargo Arena, 600 East Veterans Way in Tempe. The Beavers have been a not so great team in the Pac 12 and they won't likely put a crimp in ASU’s tournament plans.
The game will tip off at 9 p.m. Tickets start at $10 and are available via www.thesundevils.com or by calling 480-727-0000.
