Devil’s Country – ASU Sports Report

March 6, 2008

Quack Off Oregon

Now that the USC fans are finally about done crying about the officiating, it time to hit the hardwood once again.  Tonight the Devils have the first of two in Oregon.  The Ducks are easily beatable and this game falls under the should win category for ASU, but you can never rule out a team, playing at home, at the end of a season, with NCAA Tournament hopes.  The Devils can basically clinch a spot in the big dance with a win tonight, while the Ducks need to capture the voters attention with a sweep this weekend and a run in the Pac-10 Tournament. 

 Devils’ Keys to the Game:  Get Pendergraph involved early…the longer it takes to get him going, the less likely he will contribute.  Harden, Harden, and Harden…can we get him to take more shots this game?  He rarely shoots more than he has to, but it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see him take 15 to 18 shots tonight.  Lastly, get someone else to contribute from the outside…I don’t care who it is.  It could be Glasser, Abbott, Kuksiks, Shipp, McMillen, or Polk, just someone needs to be the third option and sink a few open shots. 

I still can’t believe this one isn’t on TV in Arizona. 



  1. Fox Sports Net and Hanson (The Comish) suck.The Pac 10 needs a better tv package.

  2. Completely agree. I can’t believe some of the games that are covered over the ASU games as well. It’s pathetic that fox sports doesn’t even have an HD channel! I don’t know who is to blame, but you would think the Pac-10 schools would do something about it by now.

  3. I also can’t believe this game isn’t on TV. Its just ridiculous. The networks are still too busy putting their lips on UofA’s assess. This happened earlier in the year when ASU played UCLA. The game was on tape delay. What is this 1980? Ridiculous. And of course if you watch College GameNight on ESPN I doubt they will take anytime to show this bubble game highlights. Like the entire nation cares about Duke. I could care less.

  4. Oops! 67-61 – say hello to the NIT, Scummies! Oh, and watch out tomorrow – Beavers have only won three conference games in the past two years – but two of those three were against you!

  5. We aren’t in danger of the NIT just yet. All we need is a win against Oregon St. 2 wins against ASU in the last 2 years doesn’t really mean much to me. This years team is miles ahead of any team we have had in the last 10 years. (even better than the Ike Diogu era)
