SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Romello White scored 14 points including a pivotal short hook shot with 1:31 left, and Arizona State held on to beat San Francisco 71-67 on Tuesday night.

Remy Martin had 14 points, five assists and six rebounds for the Sun Devils (5-2). Martin, Arizona State’s leading scorer who was coming off a career-high 33 against Providence a week earlier, shot 4 of 15 and had four turnovers. White finished with 11 rebounds, and Taeshon Cherry scored 10 points.

Jamaree Bouyea had 17 points and Khalil Shabazz added 15 for San Francisco (7-2). The Dons have lost consecutive games after winning their first seven.

The game was tight throughout the second half with 12 lead changes.

Bouyea made two free throws with 1:49 remaining to make it 68-66. White, who left the game twice for an ankle injury and cut on his chin, answered with a hook shot near the base line.

San Francisco missed numerous chances to score after that but missed two 3s and a layup.

Khalid Thomas sealed the win for Arizona State with a free throw with 5.9 second left. Thomas then stole the ensuing inbounds pass near midcourt.

The Dons lost at home for the first time this season despite a gritty effort. Because they’re playing a back-to-back, the Dons won’t have much time to think about where it went wrong late either.


Martin logged more playing time (29 minutes) than any other Arizona State player. At least this game he got a chance to rest. Martin payed all 40 minutes in the Sun Devils win over Princeton a week earlier.


Arizona State returns home on Saturday to host Louisiana. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
