Arizona State played the heavy at Gampel Pavilion this time, and eliminated the Huskies 68-61 in the first round of the NIT before 6,045 on Wednesday night. UConn was lost without him in the first half, offensively and defensively, and the Sun Devils, bigger, stronger and executing their offense at a high level, threatened to blow the Huskies out. Then UConn awoke to the challenge, scratched and clawed from 16 points behind to tie the game 59-59 on Omar Calhoun's three-pointer with 2:42 to play, setting up another dramatic, possession-by-possession finish. But ASU's Shaquielle McKissic hit a three from the left wing, the spot from which Texas and Yale hit crushing threes earlier this year, to put Arizona State back on top for good. The Huskies offense sputtered to the finish as McKissic, a hardened junior college transfer granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA this season, took control of the game, finishing with 22 points, including seven of his team's nine in... "It's so important to [McKissic] that, at times, you almost feel him willing our team to wins," Arizona State coach Herb Sendek said.
The road that Mike Bercovici has traveled has been long, winding, and often uphill. Before he authored one of the greatest moments in Arizona State football history, before a stadium chanted his name, and before he got the job he’s long sought, he battled. "He’s a Sun Devil. "It doesn’t matter if things are right for him or not right. As the 2015 season looms, all signs point to it being Bercovici’s long-awaited breakout year. He finally has the job he’s always wanted: the starting quarterback for his beloved Sun Devils. After all, Bercovici is taking the reins of a team with College Football Playoff aspirations, and his career resume has three just starts on it. While many outside the program remain skeptical, those within it are confident that they have the... "Berco has that ‘it’ factor that quarterbacks have to have," said longtime ASU football broadcaster Tim Healey. In the realm of college football and commanding a huddle, it was clear to me from the get go that Berco had and has ‘it’. ". Bercovici has waited a long time to take center stage for his beloved Sun Devils. "I started playing tackle football at five years old—illegally—with seven, eight, and nine-year-olds," said Bercovici. "It was me who said it was time to see what it is like to get hit a little bit and play a little.
The last time Arizona and Arizona State met for the Territorial Cup while both being ranked in the Top 25, Ronald Reagan wasn't even midway through his second term and Dionne Warwick, Elton John and Gladys Knight combined to bring us the top song... Both Arizona and Arizona State entered the game tied with UCLA for the top spot in the Pac-12's South Division, with UCLA holding the tiebreaker. Let's dive right in as we pick apart both the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils in our game grades. Arizona State Run Offense. It can really be boiled down to two halves in which the Sun Devils were either pretty solid or pretty horrible. A decent 3. 4 yards per rush is a good place to start, and we were thinking that if ASU could continue to find avenues to run the ball while perhaps mixing in a few big plays, the Sun Devils might just be able to pull off the win. After halftime, however, Arizona stepped up its pressure, which not only kept the passing game off-balance but also completely disrupted the run game from ASU. Minus the first-half numbers, Arizona State gained just 14 rushing yards on 14 carries.
