ASU men's basketball came back from 22 points down to upset rival No. 22 UA 66-65 on Saturday night.
After falling down into their deficit in the first half, the Sun Devils mounted a furious comeback to begin the second half, forcing the Wildcats to miss their first five shots to begin the period.
ASU used that defense and turned it into a 15-4 run to cut the deficit to one. After trading shots for nearly ten minutes, ASU took a 60-59 lead, its first lead of the second half.
After battling with the lead, junior guard Alonzo Verge Jr. hit the go-ahead layup with nine seconds left to lift the Sun Devils over the Wildcats.
The Sun Devils forced the Wildcats into 18 turnovers, which they turned into 20 points.
Despite holding UA to shooting 28% in the second half, ASU committed 10 fouls in the period, leading to eight points off free throws for UA.
ASU shot 42% in the second half, spearheaded by a combined 21 points from Martin and Edwards.
The win marks the Sun Devils' first win over a ranked team this season.
