Sendek: Sun Devils face tough test

Posted: Feb 11, 2009 | 17 min 17 sec

The No. 18 ASU men's hoops team faces a tough test as it opens up a series with the Los Angeles schools with a Thursday night matchup with UCLA.

After taking on he three-time defending Pac-10 champion and No. 11 UCLA Feb. 12, ASU will host USC Feb. 15.

The Sun Devils are 18-5 and 7-4 in the Pac-10 under third-year head coach and 301-game winner Herb Sendek. Sendek talked about the upcoming series at his regular meeting with the local news media.

Sendek, the second-youngest active coach with 300 Division I wins, will enter the arena as a head coach for the 500th time while ASU will try and end one of the most impressive streaks in Pac-10 history as the Bruins have won 32 straight front-end games of Pac-10 weekends (in other words, the Thursday game in most cases), a streak dating to a Jan. 20, 2005 home loss to Stanford. ASU topped then-ninth-ranked UCLA 61-58 in overtime on Jan. 17, the Bruins only home loss of the year.

ASU has clinched back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since the 1993-94 team went 15-13 and the 1994-95 team went 24-9 and  is two wins away from clinching back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time since the 1979-80 team went 22-7 and the 1980-81 team went 24-4.
