Arizona State lost its first home game of the season on Wednesday, falling to DePaul, 78-61.

The Sun Devils got off to a good start and jumped out to a 7-0 lead, but it was all downhill from there. The Blue Demons took their first lead with just under 12 minutes to play in the opening frame and never let up. DePaul slowly extended its lead throughout the rest of the first half and led 42-33 at halftime.

Arizona State made a run to open the second half and cut the lead to six, but that was as close as the Sun Devils would get. Arizona State didn't shoot well on Wednesday, making just three of its 15 three-point attempts and going 8-of-19 on free-throw attempts. The Sun Devils also lost the rebounding battle, 39-32.

Freshman Jahii Carson had possibly the worst game of his young career. He finished with 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting but also committed six of ASU's 13 turnovers. Evan Gordon and Carrick Felix also scored 12 points. Brandon Young led DePaul with 18 points, while Cleveland Melvin recorded a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
