Robbing The Cardinal

Stealing Honey From The Golden Bears

The Theft Against The Utes

In the third game of the streak, ASU defeated Utah, 82-70. Utah was forced into 15 turnovers by the swarming Sun Devil defense. ASU scored 15 points off of turnovers. Neal and Collins led the team with three steals each and Alonzo Gaffney was also huge in that game with two steals.

During this four game win streak the Sun Devils have won the turnover battle in each game. This is major as they have not shot the ball well on a consistent basis.

ASU is proving that they can win even the shot is not falling because of their defense. Being able to sustain this level of intensity on defense may carry Arizona State to a Pac-12 title.
