ANDREW’S FREE PICK
I’ll probably stick with Arizona State in this one. Neither team has been doing all that well lately however, so this one’s lacking a little luster. That said, The Sun Devils managed a 74-69 win at Gill Coliseum the last time these teams met up. Arizona State shot a nice 49 percent in that one with a 31-29 rebounding deficit. The bad news for the Sun Devils is that they haven’t won a game or hit 70 points in any of the four games since then. If they can get off to a good start at home in this rematch however, I think Arizona State will be okay cover-wise.
