Back In The New York Groove: @SunDevilHoops Meets No. 18 Purdue In Jimmy V Classic
The 2016-17 Sun Devil men's basketball team (5-3) has zig-zagged across North America a third time (to Orlando and the Bahamas prior) and now plays No. 18 Purdue in the Jimmy V Classic on Dec. 6 at Madison Square Garden. Dave O'Brien and Jay Bilas have the call for ESPN, as ASU is in the middle of a six-game stretch that has them playing No. 1, No. 18, and No. 10 Creighton along with UNLV, at San Diego State and New Mexico State. The Sun Devils returned two starters (Tra Holder and Obi Oleka) and four total lettermen from last year's squad that posted eight wins against top-100 RPI teams in Bobby Hurley's first season. Tim Healey and Kyle Dodd have the call on the Sun Devil Sports Radio Network, presented by MidFirst, on ESPN 620 AM in Phoenix.
