first_imgLOS ANGELES – Arizona State lost its last four games by only a combined 14 points, and earlier this month missed an open shot and a chance to beat Washington State in the closing seconds. When the Sun Devils visited Pauley Pavilion on Jan. 18, they held an early lead and trailed by a handful of points before UCLA pulled away for a 10-point win. For that reason, the No. 5 Bruins will not take last-place Arizona State lightly tonight at Wells Fargo Arena. Count Bruins coach Ben Howland among those who do not believe UCLA hurt its chances of earning the No. 1 seed in the West in the NCAA Tournament with last Saturday’s loss to West Virginia. “It’s all based on what we do from here on out, depending on how we go,” Howland said. “It’s a loss. We’re still No. 1 in the RPI. So, although it’s a loss, it’s a loss against a good team on the road. But that remains to be seen. “It’s totally depending on what we do with the rest of our games here in the regular season.” brian.dohn@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

If you look at each individual game, that potential to win was always there. But they’re so young, and they don’t have the experience of winning all the time, that can catch up with you.” Arizona State is heading toward the first winless season in Pac-10 history. If the Sun Devils fail to get out of the weekend with a win, they will be the first Pac-10 team to lose its first 15 conference games. last_img read more

first_imgTop seed Somdev Devvarman assured India at least a silver medal in the tennis competition of the Commonwealth Games by storming into the men’s singles final with a straight set win over Australia’s Matthew Ebden here today.Somdev, ranked 97th, outplayed third seed and world number 165 Ebden, 6-3 6-1 in one hour and 11 minutes in the men’s singles semifinals at the Centre Court of the R K Khanna Tennis stadium.His next opponent will also be an Australian as the other semifinal is an all-Australian affair between second seed Peter Luczak and fifth seed Greg Jones.Unlike the previous matches, the semifinal featured long rallies but Somdev had strong enough legs and stamina to outlast his opponent.Ebden was coming into this match after playing an energy-sapping three-setter against British Joshua Goodall and perhaps had not recovered from the gruelling encounter.Nevertheless, he did pose some questions for Somdev but the Indian was equipped with enough answers.The match never rose to expected highs ever since Ebden dropped his serve in the first game. The Australian slowly picked up but Somdev gradually tightened his grip over the match.The Indian broke Ebden twice in both the sets. He is also in contention in the men’s doubles and is scheduled to play semifinals with Rohan Bopanna later in the dayWith inputs from PTIlast_img read more
