The Arizona St. Sun Devils easily handled the Florida A&M University Rattlers on Sunday, improving to 2-0 with a 97-70 victory.

The Sun Devils went up 19 points early and led by 13 at halftime, but an offensive drought in the second half allowed the Rattlers to climb back within five. ASU shooting recovered, and 12 unanswered points put the Sun Devils back in the clear, where they stayed until the final buzzer.

Jahii Carson led the scoring for ASU, picking up 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor and 6-of-7 from the foul line. Jonathan Gilling had a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds, and Chris Colvin contributed 15 points in 25 minutes off the bench. The team shot 55 percent as a whole and held FAMU to just 33.3 percent.

The home stand continues for Arizona State with Monday's game against Cornell Big Red.
