ASU Basketball: Sun Devils remain undefeated with 104-65 victory over Pacific

Arizona State drops triple digits for the second time this season

NCAA Basketball: Pacific at Arizona State Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Another game, another win for Arizona State (12-0) as the team ran over the Pacific Tigers 104-65 for their 12th win of their undefeated season.

The performance was fueled by senior guards Tra Holder, Shannon Evans III and Kodi Justice, their two freshmen Remy Martin and Romello White and junior De-Quon Lake all put up double digit points, combining for 93 of the 104 points scored and continuing their run of scoring 75 points or more in each game.

ASU started off strong during the first half as they put up 47 points in the first period thanks to Evans and Holder scoring 29 total points before the break. Though Pacific put up 31 in that half, the Sun Devils never let the Tigers go on a run without them keeping pace as they kept going toe to toe with them whenever they put up points. A big difference between the two was their shooting percentages as ASU shot 48 percent overall in the first half and 47 percent from the three point line while the Tigers shot 31 percent overall and 12.5 percent from three.

Arizona State didn’t let off the pressure during the second half, especially towards the end of the game as they went on a massive 23-4 run that went on for almost seven minutes in the middle of the second half that put the game on ice. Lake added five blocks to bolster ASU’s defenses under the basket.

For the Sun Devils, they’ll have a full week to get themselves ready for the start of conference play as they head to Tucson on Dec. 30th to play No. 18 Arizona.
