ASU Moment of the Year seed No. 11: Jahii Carson scores 40 points vs. UNLV

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Next week House of Sparky will begin our "ASU Moment of the Year" tournament, with the 16 best moments from the athletic season. This week we will randomly introduce all 16 moments, then reveal our seedings and match-ups next week, where you, the reader, will vote on what was the ASU athletics Moment of the Year.

Jahii Carson made his first basket 1:45 into the game. Little did he know at the time, he would be on his way to 38 more points on the night of Nov. 19, 2013.

The Sun Devils knew it wouldn't be easy going into the Thomas & Mack Center to play against Bryce Dejean-Jones, Roscoe Smith and the rest of the Runnin' Rebels. It was expected to be the first road test for the maroon and gold last season and it didn't start out well. Arizona State went into halftime down 38-34.

Carson came out in the second half and willed the Sun Devils to an 86-80 victory with 26 points in the second half. The Mesa High School product also had seven assists and twice as many points as Jermaine Marshall, who had 20 as the the second leading scorer in the game that night.

The win advanced Arizona State to a 4-0 record. Carson became the fifth Sun Devil to score 40 points in a game and the first Sun since James Harden, who put up a 40-spot on UTEP on Nov. 30, 2008.

He's a man! He dropped 40.
