Arizona State Sun Devils at Oregon Ducks

NCAAB: Matthew Knight Arena, Eugene, Oregon at 11:30 PM  ET, Thursday, February 22, 2018

The Arizona State Sun Devils travel to Eugene to face the Oregon Ducks in a marquee Pac-12 match-up on Thursday night. Both teams are coming into this game on the back of defeats in their previous games.

Wildcats>Sun Devils in desert rivalry

After a sub-par start to conference play, the Arizona State Sun Devils have resurrected their Pac-12 record with three wins in their last four games (19-7 overall). They did, however, lose their previous game, to the Arizona Wildcats 77-70.

Tra Holder scored 20 points for the Sun Devils, while Kodi Justice chipped in with 19 points. The Sun Devils made just 7 of 12 from the free-throw line, while the Wildcats made 21 of 27.

“We’ve got to find a way to not get ourselves in holes early,” Justice said. “To exert all that energy to come all the way back, that’s why we came up short.”

Ducks lose consecutive tight games

The Oregon Ducks have slipped down the conference standings after two successive losses. A tight 72-70 defeat to the USC Trojans was followed by an 86-78 OT loss to the UCLA Bruins in their previous game. The Ducks are 7-7 in conference play and 17-10 overall.

Payton Pritchard scored 23 points, while Elijah Brown and MiKyle McIntosh pitched in with 19 points each. The Ducks could only manage 40.5% from the field. The Bruins also won the glass battle, putting on 46 rebounds to the Ducks’ 37.

“We really put ourselves in a poor position,” Ducks coach Dana Altman said. “We weren’t shooting the ball well, especially at the free throw line. In regulation, we shot five for 10, and in overtime we missed a front end of a 1-and-1 situation. We also had a bad stretch when we went down by 11 points.”

Trends:

Arizona State Sun Devils are: 

  • 14-4-2 ATS in their last 20 games following an ATS loss.
  • 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games following a straight up loss.
  • 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games following three or more consecutive home games.

Oregon Ducks are: 

  • No key trends

The Ducks’ morale may not be too high after two demoralizing losses in succession. The Sun Devils, with Holder in fine form, will come out ready and refreshed.
