Arizona State Vs. Cal Final Score: Sun Devils Take 68-47 Loss, Get Swept In Bay Area

The Arizona St. Sun Devils did not fare well in their road trip to the Bay Area of Northern California. Following a loss to Stanford, the Sun Devils were handed yet another lopsided defeat by the hometown California Golden Bears on Saturday afternoon. ASU lost by a final score of 68-47 to fall to 3-8 in the Pac-12, with an overall record of 7-16.

Arizona State faltered early, putting up only 16 points in the first half, against 34 from Cal. They fared far better with 31 points in the second half, but the bulk of the damage had already been done. They finished shooting just 38.3 percent from the floor and only 64.3 from the free-throw line on 14 chances. By contrast, on Cal's 20 free throw attempts, they made 18 of those shots, shooting 90 percent.

One night after hitting a career-high 20 points, ASU center Jordan Bachynski had only five points and five rebounds against Cal. Forward Kyle Cain led the Sun Devils with 18 points, also picking up nine rebounds. Allen Crabbe of the Golden Bears led all scorers with 19 points.

The Sun Devils will play their next game on Thursday, February 9, when they host the Utah Utes.

Stanford Cruises By ASU 68-44, Bachynski Scores Career-high

Before the road trip to Northern California, Arizona State head coach Herb Sendek was in a particularly positive mood, tweeting, "How about a sweep this weekend?" The start of the game between the Sun Devils and Stanford Cardinal looked like ASU could start off the weekend right, but things changed quickly as Stanford ran away with a 68-44 win in conference play.

They took an early 12-7 and 14-9 lead in the first half, but then everything sort of fell apart. The rest of the first half, the Sun Devils hit only one more field goal and the entire first half they did not log a single assist. Meanwhile, built an eight-point lead into the half.

The second half was all Stanford. They put up an additional 40 points, starting the second half with an 8-0 and 11-2 run.

Arizona State shot only 36 percent, was outrebounded 38-24, only had four assists and turned the ball over 14 times.

Not everything was bad as starting center Jordan Bachynski followed his career-high last weekend with another career high, he netted 20 points on 10-12 shooting.

For Stanford, Aaron Bright scored 16 and Chasson Randle added 14.

The Sun Devils move on to play Cal Saturday at noon Arizona time.
