Devils Drop Pac-10 Opener to Huskies

Serge Angounou During the UW Game Tonight

For the first twenty minutes, the maroon and gold stood toe-to-toe with the undefeated Huskies, as they trailed 40-38. The second half opened with a 10-0 run by the home team, which essentially sealed the game's faith. When the final buzzer sounded, the scoreboard read 91-67 in favor of Washington.

Arizona State (6-4, Pac-10 0-1) was led by Kevin Kruger who had 18 points. Bryson Krueger chipped in with 13 points and tied a team high with six boards. Antwi Atuahene was the only other Sun Devil to register double figures in scoring with 10 points. The visitors shot only 37% from the field, and lost the rebound battle 42-34. Washington (11-0, 1-0) was paced by Brandon Roy who scored 35 points on Thursday night.

The Sun Devils will try to gain a split on this road trip when they meet up with Washington State (6-3, 0-1) Saturday at 4PM. The Cougars dropped their conference opener against Arizona, but have enjoyed a relatively successful season thus far. Needless to say that ASU's performance in the first half of tonight's game will have to be duplicated in order for them to have a chance at victory.
