Arizona State Vs. Nevada Final: Devils Downed By Wolf Pack In A Close One

Wednesday's game against the Nevada came down to the wire but unfortunately the visiting Wolf Pack left victorious, stealing one from the Sun Devils 69-61. Carrick Felix lead ASU in scoring with 15 points and Kyle Cain chipped in 15 and 10 rebounds in an impressive game of his own. Deonte Burton lead Nevada in scoring with a game-high 28 mostly due to his 13-15 free throw shooting while also adding four steals.

The Devils started out very sloppy from the opening tip, being down by as much as 11 at one point because of their inability to find the bottom of the net. But thanks to a late 13-0 run due to some suddenly inspired play, they were able to head to the locker room leading 29-27.

Then after trading punches for much of the second half, Nevada began to pull away due to an excess of fouls and some poor execution on the defensive glass (gave up eight second-half offensive rebounds). The Devils were able to narrow the gap as close as 65-61 in the final minute with a three by Keala King but ultimately, the deep shots weren't falling from downtown in the closing seconds as Nevada continued to bury their free throws.
