ASU 65, USC 53

Well, the desert was not kind to the Trojans, as ASU completed the LA sweep with a win at Wells Fargo Arena. It was another bad first half for the Trojans as they trailed at half but got back in the game thanks to a great shooting 2nd half. The game however was decided in the last three minutes as the Trojans and Sun Devils were trading baskets when Daniel Hackett was called for a charge. There was some confusion however, as one official signaled a foul on ASU but there was no conference, no reversal, just a charge on Daniel Hackett. This of course set Tim Floyd on fire. There is obviously more to the game then the foul call and subsequent ejection of Floyd, but it is the story from Tempe. I asked if the Pac-10 could fine or suspend Floyd but couldn't get a straight answer from anyone. I'll have Floyd's comments up as a podcast and I'll link to it on this blog sometime in the future. It will be very interesting to see what happens after the holiday, more to come on the KSCR blog, and 1560am, including the next men's basketball game on Thursday at 7:30 vs. Washington State.
