With the Buffs just losing in Eugene, there is a 4 way tie for first in the loss column. Be nice to get the win tonight in Palo Alto. #forksup #falldown

And that’s exactly what they did! Very nice win last night against a tough Stanford team at home. And on a night where Romelo White was a total non-factor and Cherry out for several more games with the ankle injury.
Hurley doing all he can to squeeze every ounce out of this rag-tag team. I’m stunned at where they now sit in the PAC-12 standings...

Remy Martin leads Guard U to another win. Now 5 straight conference games. They have to keep it up if they want to make the big dance; the Ducks come to Tempe on Thursday. I hope to make it over there for the second half, have an engagement that evening.

They’re winning ugly... but with the limited talent they have, there really is no other way.
Martin has to be all-world in order for this team to even have a chance. They have zero depth.
But still, somehow Hurley has pulled off 5 straight PAC 12 wins.... given how little talent this team has, that is one helluva an accomplishment!

You can make a good argument, it's his most impressive season.

A road sweep of Stanford and California. Yeah, Bobby Hurley has got it rolling.

Man, if Luguentz Dort would have stayed one more year! Instead, it took a little for this team to come together and Dort is bouncing between the G-League and the Thunder on a two way contract. He could have made so much more money had he stayed on worked on his game and this team could make a push in the Tourny! Instead, we are a bubble team relying on Remy Freaking Martin!

As for Remy, he has to have the biggest heart of any Sun Devil in many years. I hope he gets keeps getting better and turns into a Eddie House.

Remy Martin named PAC 12 Player of the Week.


Doug Haller‏Verified account @DougHaller


ASU guard Remy Martin is the Pac-12 Player of the Week.

He averaged 23.0 points on 67 percent shooting (16-24), including 5-of-6 behind the arc, and 3.5 assists as ASU swept the Bay Area schools.

Great drinking game:

Drink everytime Bill Walton says "conference of champions". You will be hammered by halftime

What a turnaround for the Suns Devils. That win against Oregon was impressive no matter how they won.

Whatever they are doing, keep it going!

Another ugly win for the Devils, but a win nonetheless! And a HUGE win at that. Six in a row now for ASU. And seriously, they really aren’t that talented. Hurley with an incredible coaching job. Wow...

Would rather win ugly than lose pretty. Devils will not dominate games. They are playing tight games and hopefully that will prepare them for tournament time

Should be a fascinating game Thur, arguably the 2 hottest teams in the conference. UCLA has Hill back he didn't play in the first game, the last 2 games UCLA has defended the 3 much better, ASU killed us from 3. Apparently both ASU and UA are close to sellouts, they are expecting packed crowds at Pauley, should be a great atmosphere.

And yes I think you can make a strong case for both Hurley and Cronin for COTY. Hurley has ASU in first place without what looks to be a first place roster, and Cronin lost the 3 leading scorers and had a terrible OOC but now the team has bought in he's turned a terrible defensive team into a good one.

Yep Devils have won 7 in a row and UCLAs last loss was a 20 point beat down in Tempe 5 games ago.

Big game.
