Has ASU ever been ranked that high?
And they received 5 first place votes!
Yep. Their highest ranking ever was #3 back in the 60's...from what I saw. I think they should've been put in the top 3, but a few more wins, and we might make it to #1
Xavier was ranked 10th and Kansas was ranked 13th.
I think the Sun Devils should have been ranked in the top three based upon their performance as well.
Arizona State was included on all 65 @AP_Top25 ballots this week. Five voters ranked the Sun Devils No. 1. Three voters had them outside the Top 10 at 12, 15 and 18.
ASU and UA only two ranked teams from the Pac12? Guessing that's not happened before either.
Sorry, sounds like the kiss of death to me.
How high was ASU ranked when James Harden was here?
I believe they were also ranked third in the Byron Scott, Fat Lever years.
At fifth in the nation, it’s the highest ASU has ranked since the 1980-81 season when the Sun Devils clinched No. 3 in the final AP Top 25. Led by Byron Scott, Alton Lister and Fat Lever, ASU finished that season 24-4 with a second round loss to Kansas in the 1981 NCAA Tournament.
I remember that tournament but don't think the game was even televised here. IIRC the top two teams in the poll were also upset and I thought ASU may have a chance but I may be remembering that wrong.
That’s the wrong Mr. Lister, Mister.
Blame these guys...
