Prior to the college basketball season hitting the conference portion of the schedule, the Arizona State Sun Devils were viewed as the Pac-12’s only chance at respectability. With some bad losses on the resume, but with great wins over the likes of the Kansas Jayhawks, there remains a chance ASU will do just that.
Heading into the team’s game against the Arizona Wildcats, however, head coach Bobby Hurley forced his team to read scores of previous games, making them run sprints for each loss acquired during the season. After defeating Arizona on Thursday night, though, the suffering is apparently over.
“That was pretty much his message to us,” Arizona State’s Zyland Cheatham said. “He’s a nut. The suffering’s over. He said, `The suffering stops tonight’ and it did.”
With the victory, the Arizona State Sun Devils improved to 15-6 (6-3 in the Pac-12) on the season. While the overall record isn’t insanely impressive, most who follow the team do realize the Sun Devils have the talent to do damage come March.
