ASU Basketball Minute 02-11-2012
Saturday the Arizona State Sun Devils men’s basketball team will face Colorado with an opportunity to build on a strong performance from their Thursday victory over Utah.
The Sun Devils came out strong riding the coattails of Jordan Bachynski who set the tone early in the first half with: 4 points, 3 blocks and 10 rebounds. Bachynski ended with the first double/double in his career with 11 points and 12 rebounds. After the game Bachynski stated he played like “an animal”.
The other story to this game was the return of Trent Lockett who had been out for three weeks since spraining his ankle. He said he had treatment before and after the game but felt no unexpected tightness or discomfort.
Colorado will be a stiffer test for the Sun Devils but if they can cut down on turnovers and gang rebound, they should have an opportunity to go 2 – 0 on this home stand.
