An interesting season for the Arizona St. Sun Devils figures to add another chapter tonight against the USC Trojans. Players Keala King, Kyle Cain and Chris Colvin have been suspended by coach Herb Sendek for "unacceptable conduct" and the trio did not travel with the team to Los Angeles.
Tonight's game, set to tipoff at 8:30 MST, presents a stiff test for the Sun Devils without three important contributors. However, it also presents an opportunity. Other ASU players- starting with Trent Lockett- will be forced to step up in the absence of King, Cain and Colvin. If ASU can respond with some strong play and a win, this suspension could turn out to be more of a blessing than a disaster.
