I'm glad we didn't go against Auburn or UConn in the first round. They both looked unstoppable. Also they made many many free throws combined. We'd had missed a lot given our current FT%. We still beat ASU easily but should be a close first half.

Anyone remember Baylor at Arizona State in 2009 where we trailed by 8 or 9 late in the game going up against James Harden... there was a young guy Baylor2222, not sure how many 2s. He posted a all too frequent game thread post... done with Baylor, done with Drew, all we get is heartbreak, and we never show up against good competition....
It was like the moment he posted it, Tweety Cater went unconscious.... he could do no wrong... Baylor wins by 9...
That kid had a tough rest of the night and into the next week... fubar was in particularly good form as i remember.... It was funny stuff on top of a great win on the road against a great player. Just one more step towards 2021 National Champs

Amazing at the amount of respect we now get from all the talking heads. I still keep pinching myself and asking if it's real.

Defense needs to settle in. ASU is scoring at will a bad ASU offense at that

As far as the "eye test" goes, ASU looks like a team we should destroy - and maybe we ultimately will, but this hasn't been a good start.

Matt makes a basket. Hopefully that will get him going.
