Short-Handed Sun Devils Stun USC
LOS ANGELES (CBS) – Despite the suspensions of three key players, the Arizona State Sun Devils stunned the USC Trojans 62-53 at the Galen Center on Thursday night to knock the Trojans to 0-3 in Pac-12 play.
Before the game, Sun Devils head coach Herb Sendek announced leading scorer Keala King, Chris Colvin and forward Kyle Cain would not make the trip to Los Angeles, leaving the struggling Sun Devils with six scholarship players.
But that didn’t seem to slow the Devils down, who played one of their better games of the season, thanks to former Duke commit Carrick Felix, who scored 22 points to lead the Sun Devils (5-9, 1-1).
USC was led by Aaron Fuller with 14 points.
On Saturday the Trojans will look to avoid falling 0-4 in conference play when they host the Arizona Wildcats.
With the win, ASU snaps a four-game losing streak, which started with a loss to Northern Arizona.
