Arizona State 65, Colorado 56: Jordan Bachynski finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and nine blocked shots as the host Sun Devils rallied from an early double-digit deficit to defeat the Buffaloes.

Carrick Felix scored a team-high 20 points and Jonathan Gilling had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Sun Devils (13-2, 2-0 Pac-12), who won their first two conference games for just the fourth time in the program’s 35-year history.
 
Spencer Dinwiddie scored 19 points to lead Colorado (10-4, 0-2), and helped limit Arizona State leading scorer Jahii Carson to five points. Askia Booker added 13 points and Josh Scott had 10 points and eight rebounds for the Buffaloes.

Colorado surged to a 13-2 lead just over five minutes into the game as Arizona State missed eight of its first nine shots. The Buffaloes stretched the advantage to 17-4 before the Sun Devils began chipping away, eventually cutting the deficit to three at the half.

The Sun Devils finally went ahead 41-39 on a layup by Felix with 12:40 remaining in the game and didn’t trail again. Carson, who came in averaging 17.5 points, went scoreless until converting a layup with 5:26 remaining - part of an 11-0 run that stretched the lead to 55-43.
