Folks, the Arizona State Sun Devils are ready to tip off the 2016-17 season, their second under head coach Bobby Hurley.

For Hurley, a star backcourt tandem featuring junior point guard Tra Holder and Buffalo transfer Shannon Evans II will look to buoy the team into Pac-12 relevance. In the frontcourt, Obinna Oleka looks to provide experience to a group composed of several new faces.

Can the Sun Devils shock the world? We'll soon find out with the season set to get started at Wells Fargo Arena shortly.

Ahead of the contest, here's a look at our complete preseason preview series. The official Gamethread will take place in the comments section of this post:
