TEMPE, Ariz. Adoree Jackson Womens Jersey . -- Few expected Arizona State to give top-ranked Kentucky a battle in the Nov. 28 game, but the 46-point loss was humbling.The Sun Devils fired back after that defeat. From long range. Arizona State tied a school record by knocking down 18 3-pointers in a 97-73 win over UNLV Saturday night.Guard Shannon Evans II led the way with a season-high 28 points as the Sun Devils beat UNLV for the fourth straight season.You wonder about the psyche of the team, the confidence of the team after something like that, coach Bobby Hurley said. But we practiced real hard and guys got a lot of pride. I thought we might struggle some early in the game on offense. I felt that the guys would perform and outwork our opponent defensively.Evans, Torian Graham and Tra Holder combined to make 15 3s, with Graham hitting six as part of his 22 points. Holder added 20 points and Arizona State shot 49 percent from the field.ASU led by as many as 30 points.Probably the most important win of the season, Graham said. We were all in a dark place last week so it was good to just get out of that dark place.ASU used an 11-0 run to take a 20-6 lead in the first half, with Graham and Holder hitting a pair of treys during the run. The Rebels cut the lead to five, 34-29, on free throw by Jalen Poyser with 4:15 left, but the Sun Devils closed out the half on a 17-3 run and stayed in control the rest of the way.A night like this, when everybodys hitting, is always great, Evans said. When we play great defense, everybody gets easier shots and everybody scores, so its more fun for everybody.Thirteen of Arizona States 17 first-half field goals were from long distance. Maurice OField took ASUs 36th 3-point attempt with 17 seconds left, but the effort came up short of both the rim and the school record.Down 19 points at halftime, UNLV couldnt cut the lead into single digits. Poysers 20 points led UNLV, with forward Tyrell Green adding 18 points and nine rebounds.The Rebels had won five of six coming into the game.TIP-INSUNLV: Uche Ofoegbu started after missing the Rebels last game due to illness ... Christian Jones (foot) missed his fifth straight game ... Cheickna Dembele (foot) played five minutes after missing the past three games.ARIZONA STATE: Rapper YG, in town for a show on Sunday, took part in the students Curtain of Distraction free throw tradition ... Kodi Justice was knocked to the floor on the final play of the first half but was able to walk off the court and returned in the second half.STAT OF THE NIGHT: Arizona States 73 points allowed wasnt a season low, but it showed defensive improvement after the Sun Devils had surrendered 110 and 115 points in their two most recent games.TURNING POINT: Justice fed Obinna Oleka for a 3 with 1:54 left in the first half, then hit his only 3 of the game 38 seconds later to give ASU a 48-32 lead. UNLV had trailed by only five moments before and was still within striking distance until that sequence.BIG PICTUREUNLV: Three of the Rebels next five games are against teams in the Top 25: No. 5 Duke on Dec. 10, No. 23 Oregon in Portland on Dec. 17 and fourth-ranked Kansas on Dec. 22.Arizona State: The Sun Devils go to New York for their next game, then fly back across the country to San Diego for a game against San Diego State on Dec. 10.UP NEXTUNLV takes on Duke at the new T-Mobile Arena Dec. 10.Arizona State plays No. 15 Purdue in the Jimmy V Classic Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.

"It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. When Warriors centre Solomone Kata needed a friend, compatriot Konrad Hurrell was there.The Tongan powerhouse has made an explosive start to life in the NRL, scoring 22 tries over two years and cementing a spot in his sides starting XIII.But Kata, 21, has never forgotten the man who helped him reach the top.Ex-Warrior Hurrell was Katas point of reference upon joining the first-grade dressing room, translating coaching instructions and providing tactical advice.Now the pair, both hard-running centres, will face each other as foes on the field when the Warriors take on Gold Coast on Sunday.When he was there, I was lucky enough to have Konrad by my side, Kata told NZN.In my first year he was the main one helping me with my game and my communication with the coaches, translating everything for me.The 25-year-old Hurrell left the Warriors in May after making only three 2016 NRL appearances and breaching team protocol on a post-match night out in Auckland.Head coach Andrew McFadden said on Thursday he remained comfortable with his decision to let Hurrell go, but Kata knew he was in for a challenge.He would do everything necessary to prevent his friend from crossing the line.. Jonnu Smith Titans Jersey. Hes probably the hardest runner in the competition so Ill just do whatever I can to stop him and put him off, Kata said.Ill be aggressive and wont give him any time in the game.McFadden said Kata had consistently excelled for the Auckland-based outfit and could develop into an NRL star.Further improvement was on the cards.Hes only in his second year and hes pretty much played every game in that time, so hes doing an incredible job and weve got a lot of faith, McFadden said.Sundays duel between the two Tongans has since been overshadowed by the Titans acquisition of star fullback Jarryd Hayne on a two-year deal.The 28-year-old Hayne Plane is expected to help secure the seventh-placed Titans an NRL finals berth and improve the clubs profile on and off the park.Kata was glad to see such a high-profile player back in the NRL but felt his sides team spirit would see them through the encounter.The eighth-placed Warriors had top eight ambitions of their own.When all the boys get together I feel confident, Kata said.Were like brothers.
