TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Marreon Jackson came off the bench to score 15 points and Arizona State breezed to a 73-53 victory over Oregon State on Saturday night.
Jackson sank 5 of 9 shots with three 3-pointers for the Sun Devils (10-15, 6-9 Pac-12 Conference). Jay Heath added 13 points, while Jalen Graham scored 12. Kimani Lawrence pitched in with 11 points and seven rebounds. DJ Horne scored 10.
Heath hit a 3-pointer and a layup in the first 3:08 as Arizona State jumped out to a 10-2 lead. Horne’s 3-pointer with 6 seconds left gave the Sun Devils a 42-29 lead at halftime.
Arizona State upped its lead to 20 on a Graham layup with 13:11 remaining in the game. Jackson’s 3-pointer with 5:30 left gave the Sun Devils their biggest lead, 69-43.
Glenn Taylor Jr. finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Beavers (3-22, 1-14), who have lost 13 straight. Dashawn Davis added 13 points.
