The Nevada Wolf Pack are 2-7 on the season, losing to such powerhouses like Pepperdine, Pacific, and Boston University. With that said, ASU (4-4) is in no position to take a road game for granted.
So what happened to Nevada? They lost their best player, Luke Babbitt, who now plays for the Idaho Stampede of the NBA D-League. That type of talent is hard to replace for a WAC team that is based out of Reno. What we're seeing is a rebuilding year for the Wolf Pack.
So, what do the Sun Devils need to do to take home the win? Run the offense through their experienced players and let fate take care of the rest. Ty Abbott, Jamelle McMillan, and Rihards Kuksiks alone should be able to outmaneuver the Wolf Pack, though the talent of Trent Lockett and Kyle Cain will come in handy.
In short, this will be a good game for ASU to play on the road and get used to wearing alternate colors. Other than that, expect a lopsided victory for the Sun Devils.
