Arizona State Team Preview

The Arizona State Sun Devils come into this game looking to bounce back from an 85-67 loss to Arizona last time out. Frankie Collins leads Arizona State in scoring and assists with 13.8 PPG and 3.3 APG along with 4.6 RPG while Adam Miller has 12.1 PPG and 3 RPG in 20 games so far this season. Jose Perez has 13.1 PPG with 3.9 RPG and 2.7 APG and Jamiya Neal has 11.5 PPG with a team-high 5.5 RPG to lead the Sun Devils on the glass and to round out the group of double-digit scorers for Arizona State so far this season.

Isaiah Collier leads the Trojans in scoring and assists with 17 PPG and 4.1 APG while Boogie Ellis has 16.6 PPG with 3.6 RPG and 3 APG. Kobe Johnson has 10.2 PPG with 4.4 RPG and 3.3 APG to lead the Trojans on the glass while rounding out the trio of double-digit scorers for USC so far this season. DJ Rodman also has 8.1 PPG along with a team-high 5 RPG to lead the Trojans on the glass.

Arizona State vs. USC Prediction

I’m on Arizona State here. You could easily argue that USC has been the biggest disappointment of any power conference program compared to preseason expectations after all of the fanfare regarding the star-studded class that this USC team had with names like Collier and Bronny James, but the results just have not been there for USC. Arizona State’s no prize either, but they play defense and bring teams down to their level and I’m just not in a position where I want to lay this many points with the Trojans. Give me Arizona State and the points in this one.
