I'm at Wells Fargo Arena, and so are both teams, so I guess we're on for an evening of basketball and blogging.
Since there's no TV, I'll try to give a few more details in my halftime and post-game reports. And, of course, I'll pop in if any news breaks before then.
Meanwhile, while waiting for the game to start, I took a walk around the arena concouse. At one point there was a Sun Devils booster table, where they were handing out pocket schedules. Apparently hot off the presses was the new ASU football schedule ... and not surprisingly, Dennis Erickson is the coverboy.
And finally, now just a couple of minutes before introductions ... this place is reeeeal empty.
Never miss a local story.
Between the cold gym and ASU's slow-down style, the Huskies are going to have to create their own energy. ... Which they'd better be able to do, because there is no reasonable NCAA tournament math that doesn't presume a win tonight.
