Oh, how the Huskies' perceptions have fallen. I was driving in from the airport and dialed into a Phoenix sports-talk station. The announcer was saying that given the choices in the area tonight, he'll probably skip the Sun Devils and go watch Coyotes hockey. Saturday, however, when Washington State comes to town, then, he said, he'll go watch ASU.
He also speculated that Arizona State should have enough to beat the Huskies, even if freshman James Harden doesn't play.
On that topic, however, I haven't heard any firm news since arriving. It still appears to be a gametime decision.
Meanwhile, I'll post back if I hear anything from the arena.
Never miss a local story.
And with NO TV tonight, I'll try to post a little more detail at halftime and after the game.
