Arizona State senior guard Alonzo Verge Jr. is out on Sunday against Houston Baptist, per

No other information was provided pregame besides Verge being out due to non-disciplinary reasons.

In two games this season, Verge is averaging 15.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. Verge had 22 points in the Sun Devils’ 83-74 loss to No. 3 Villanova on Friday.

Verge entered his name into the NBA Draft after his junior season with ASU, his first in Tempe, before deciding to return for his last year of eligibility.

Without Verge in the starting lineup, head coach Bobby Hurley elected to start freshman guard Josh Christopher alongside senior guard Remy Martin. That led to a more traditional lineup of junior forward Taeshon Cherry taking Verge’s spot, with freshman wing Marcus Bagley and sophomore big Jalen Graham filling out the full five.
