The Arizona State Sun Devils have been picked to finish ninth in a preseason poll of Pac-12 media members who cover basketball.
Head coach Herb Sendek returns six players from last year’s NCAA Tournament squad, but must replace starters Jordan Bachynski, Jahii Carson and Jermaine Marshall. This year’s team features 10 new faces, including four junior college transfers.
The Sun Devils open their season Nov. 14 when they host Chicago State at Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe.
