Jeff Pendergraph Has Arrived, ASU Beats Charlotte 84-56

ASU's defense emphatically shut down Charlotte on Thanksgiving night, to the tune of a 28 point victory in the first round of the 76 Classic in Anaheim.

Jeff Pendergraph, off to a slow start this season, really found his stride and scored 23 points while collecting ten rebounds.

ASU moves on to play Baylor in the second round at 10:30 tonight, on ESPN2.

This is going to be one of those rare "ASU Doubleheaders" on ESPN2, with the football team playing at 7:30, immediately passing the network off to Herb Sendek and his squad 3 hours later.

James Harden pitched in 15 points, while Ty Abbott scored 13.

This kind of beatdown has been what we expected to see earlier, against the likes of Mississippi Valley State or Pepperdine. But a peak performance in the first round of a neutral site tournament is a rare and unusual treat for Sun Devil (4-0) fans.

Lets just hope they can keep this up.
