Arizona vs. Washington State - 2/9/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Action-reaction ASU’s Hurley sounds off on no-show students shaky defense and poor shooting

Washington State's Robert Franks had 31 points after tying his career high with 34 at ASU on Thursday.

The Washington Huskies men's basketball team may not be dealing with a winter storm on their road trip in Arizona, but they still didn't have a good night. Entering the year, Washington hadn't completed a road sweep in six years. Arizona State went 3 for 28 from the 3-point arc.

The Sun Devils kept making shots to open the second half and Huskies kept missing.

Obviously, the Huskies will need to contain Franks who did not play in their first meeting - an 85-67 UW win on January 5 at Alaska Airlines Arena. I am sure most fans on both ends figured it would be a close game all the way but it wasn't meant to be.

The Sun Devils offense comes from a number of sources, though freshman guard Luguentz Dort (16.2 ppg) leads the way, having just scored 22 in that bad loss to WSU.

"Some of it was childish on my part, a little bit frustrated with our ability to make shots on Thursday night", Hurley said. The Sun Devils led at half-time 34-26. Washington still holds a three-game lead over the three second-place teams. On Saturday night, however, they were unable to do so. For the Sun Devils, they need the defense to show up, because it clearly didn't against the Cougars. However, Elleby knocked down a pair of free throws to return the lead to double digits. The final score was ASU 75 UW 63. He came off the bench once again due to the injuries he suffered last Saturday against UCLA. Their last seven opponents have been under 70 points and they'll be in a great position to win if they can make that eight games. However, the team's crowning achievement in the victory was its commitment to controlling the paint, as ASU had more than double the points in the paint of Washington (42-20) and nearly twice as many rebounds (40-23).

Arizona State also made life miserable for Jaylen Nowell, who had 15 points on 5-for-13 shooting.

Arizona State's leading scorer was sophomore forward Romello White with 17 points. Four out of five starters for the Sun Devils scored in double figures. Down low, senior forward Zylan Cheatham (11.6 ppg, 11.1 rpg) racks up the rebounds while struggling with turnovers at times. He did add seven assists along with nine rebounds.

Bobby Hurley's team has already proven that they can play with just about anybody; they just have a hard time actually doing it, and find themselves well behind Washington in the Pac-12 race.

It's been so long since their last loss so there's really no telling how the Huskies will handle their first setback in almost two months.

Washington State (10-4, 3-8 Pac-12) won at Arizona State on Thursday, sweeping the Arizona schools on the road for the first time since the 2006-07 season and won in Tucson for the first time since January 8, 2010.
