Sun Devils Score Only 8 In 1st Half, Fall 72-50 To Washington State

In Pullman Washington Saturday night, the Arizona State Sun Devils started terribly, scoring only eight first half points and were unable to complete the season sweep over the Washington State Cougars. The Sun Devils played much better in the second, but the deficit was too much as the Devils left town having lost 72-50.

The eight points allowed by the Cougars was the lowest point total allowed in a half since the introduction of the shot clock.

ASU went on a run to start the second half, outscoring Washington State 23-7 to pull within 12. But a four-point play ended the rally and the Cougars controlled the rest of the way.

DaVonte Lacy scored 17 points and Brock Motum added 16 for the Cougars. The only player to score in double figures for the Sun Devils was guard Chris Colvin. He had 18 in the losing effort.

Washington State improved to 14-13 (6-9), while ASU fell to 8-19 (4-11),
