Marreon Jackson leads Sun Devils in Senior Day victory over Stanford

Mar 5, 2022, 4:33 PM

TEMPE (AP) — Senior Marreon Jackson scored 18 points in his final home game, and Arizona State pulled away from Stanford in the second half to post a 65-56 win Saturday.

Arizona State closed out its regular season with four straight wins and seven victories in its final eight games. The Sun Devils will have a rematch with Stanford in a first-round Pac-12 Tournament game Wednesday in Las Vegas.

ASU did not score after Kimani Lawrence hit a jumper with 2:07 to go in the first half and Stanford took a 32-30 lead into intermission. Alonzo Gaffney tied the game with a jumper to start the second half, and his 3-pointer with 16:41 left put the Sun Devils in front 36-34.

Jaiden Delaire answered with a 3 for Stanford, but Jalen Graham put Arizona State in front with a three-point play.

Brandon Angel’s 3 with 6:13 left gave Stanford a brief lead, 52-51 before ASU replied with a 10-0 run.

Jackson hit eight of 15 shots from the field and added six rebounds, six assists and six steals to lead Arizona State (14-16, 10-10 Pac-12). Graham added 16 points on 5-of-6 shooting, and DJ Horne contributed 12 points with four assists.

Spencer Jones hit three of five shots from long range for the Cardinal (15-15, 8-12).

Stanford finished its regular season with five straight losses and seven in its final eight games.
