Devils face tough road test in Washington

Posted: Feb 24, 2009 | 16 min 45 sec

The ASU men's basketball team is headed to the Northwest, with a pair of tough games including Pac-10 leading Washington.

ASU will take on Washington Feb. 26 and then Washington State Feb. 28. The Sun Devils start out the road trip just behind Washington in the standings.

The Sun Devils, on a five-game Pac-10 win streak for the first time since 1994-95, have clinched 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.

ASU Coach Herb Sendek talked about the upcoming games at his weekly session with the media.

Coach Sendek, the second-youngest active coach with 300 Division I wins, celebrated his 46th birthday on Sunday as ASU completed an impressive sweep of Arizona for the second straight year with a 70-68 win, ASU's first four-game win streak over the Wildcats since a nine-game streak from 1979-83. The Arizona win was following a solid sweep of the Los Angeles schools the previous weekend.

After going 8-22 (.267) in Coach Sendek's first year, the Sun Devils are 42-18 (.700) since and giving up just 60.0 points per game in his 90 games and are second in Pac-10 in points allowed this year at 58.9 per game, best by a Sun Devil team since 1948-49 (47.6) and 11th in the nation. After losing his first seven games against ranked teams at ASU, Herb Sendek has gone 5-5 since including a 2-1 record this year, with both wins vs. UCLA and its loss to Washington.
