Hot shooting Sun Devils cruise to easy 97-64 win over Huskies

After taking an early 7-2 lead the Washington Huskies barrage of self inflicted wounds opened the door for 10-0 run by the Arizona Sun Devils who never looked back as they cruised to an easy 97-64 victory.


The Sun Devils were never seriously threatened after using a 17-3 run over the last 5:17 of the first half to take a 49-29 halftime lead. 


Remy Martin (26 points), Kimani Lawrence (22 points) and Alonzo Verge Jr. (16 points) all scored in double figures for the Sun Devils (8-11, 5-8 Pac-12), who shot 51 percent for the game, knocked down 10 triples and came within three points of reaching the century mark in points for the second time this season.

Lawrence tied his career high in scoring and rebounds (team-high 12 rebounds) to secure his second double-double of the season and help the Sun Devils finish plus-6 on the boards (45-39).
 
Martin, who came into the game averaging 24.9 ppg in his last seven outings, scored 20 or more points for the 36th time in his career.
 
The Sun Devils forced the Huskies (5-18, 4-14) into committing twice as many turnovers (16-8) and converted those miscues into 23 points.
 
Verge (seven assists) and Martin (six assists) combined for 13 of ASU’s 19 assists while Jaelen House led the team with a game-high four steals.
 
 
Martin (16 points, 6-11 FGs), Lawrence (10 points, 3-5 FGs, 4-4 FTs) and Verge (nine points, 4-7 FGs) accounted for 35 points and combined to shoot 57 percent (13-23 FGs) over the first 20 minutes.
