ASU women’s basketball will look to put to an end their three-game losing streak versus Colorado, a team the Sun Devils handily beat on Dec. 29.
Arizona State is playing their worst basketball of the season.
The Sun Devils have lost three straight games, and are not playing their game.
With injuries plaguing the team as of late, it’s evident the Sun Devils are struggling. Sabrina Haines is out, with her season ending knee injury. Jamie Ruden has not been practicing, nursing a concussion. Reili Richardson has missed time, with an apparent sprained ankle.
When asked about the current state of the team, head coach Charli Turner Thorne expressed her worry.
“We’re just in a tough stretch right now, we’re not playing well, we’re not healthy and we just have to play ourselves out of it.”
The Sun Devils dropped a game to Utah at home on Friday after being ahead 11 points at the end of the third quarter, and lost to the Oregon schools last week.
While the Sun Devils have fallen into their worst funk of the season, Colorado coming to town may be their greatest gift.
ASU dominated the Buffaloes by a final score of 72-47 a few weeks ago. So as Turner Thorne describes the Devils needing to play out of their rut, the best opportunity may come this afternoon.
“You always go through one stretch, where it’s kind of your funk stretch, and I feel like we’re in that right now.”
ASU stands at 4-3 in Pac-12 play, while Colorado holds a 2-5 conference record. Tip-off will be at 2 p.m. MT in Wells Fargo Arena.
