College basketball activity is coming from ASU Wells Fargo Arena on Saturday evening as the San Francisco Dons take on the Arizona State Sun Devils.
The Dons enter the game with a 3-2 record so far. San Francisco has three wins sandwiched between two losses to Long Beach State and UC Santa Barbara. In that last game, San Francisco’s top scorers were Souled Boum and Chase Foster, each with 17 points.

So far this year, Boum leads the Dons with 15.0 PPG and 3.0 RPG to his credit. The only other players averaging in double-digits for San Francisco are Foster (14.2 PPG; 5.4 RPG) and Jordan Ratinho (10.4 PPG; 3.8 RPG).
Over on the Arizona State side, they’re sitting at 6-0 on the season. The Sun Devils have beaten Northern Arizona, UC Irvine, Kansas State and Xavier in their last four games. In that Xavier game, the Sun Devils were led by Tra Holder, with 40 points.
On the season, Holder is averaging 23.3 PPG and 6.0 RPG, while Shannon Evans has 19.5 PPG and 5.3 RPG for the Sun Devils. Also in double-digits for Arizona State are Romello White (15.6 PPG; 8.6 RPG), Kodi Justice (15.5 PPG) and De’Quon Lake (12.7 PPG; 8.2 RPG).
The Dons are 7-2 ATS in their last nine Saturday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six versus the Pac-12. San Francisco is also 0-5 ATS in their last five non-conference games and 0-5 ATS in their last five overall.
Meanwhile, the Sun Devils are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games and 4-0 ATS in their last four following an ATS win. Arizona State is also 5-0 ATS in their last five non-conference games and 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall.
The Dons hung in there for the most part against UCSB, but faded down the stretch for a 79-72 loss. San Francisco has failed to reach 70 points just once this year (69 against Sacramento State), but hasn’t broken 78 points yet this year. Realistically, this is Arizona State’s game to control, and I like the Sun Devils to cover here.
