This February has been arduous for ASU basketball fans. We've been spoiled recently, and over the past three seasons we had good basketball teams playing at Wells Fargo Arena. We won 20+ games three years in a row! Things were really looking up in Tempe.
But this? This has been a disaster of a season. Arizona State is now 10-17 after losing handily to the UCLA Bruins last night. The final road game of the season, Saturday against USC, will be a very tough test for the young Devils.
USC is fresh off a huge upset over Arizona, who was ranked 10th in the nation. USC's record stands at 16-12, and look like prime candidates for the NIT barring a Pac-10 Tournament run.
Nikola Vucevic is the team's leading scorer, averaging 17.4 points a game. At 6'10", he plays in the vein of a Vladimir Radmonivic, being able to shoot threes but also grabbing over 10 rebounds a game. He will be difficult for the zone defense to stop. Vucevic scored 26 points in USC's victory over ASU in January.
Unfortunately, it looks like another loss for the Devils is in store. USC will win by a score of 73-61.
