Tickets will go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m. MST at

Times and broadcast information will be released at a later time.

“We are excited for the opportunity to play GCU at the Footprint Center,” ASU head coach Bobby Hurley said in a release. “It will be an outstanding matchup for basketball fans in the Valley. I’ve got a ton of respect for the program that GCU has built. We are always looking to challenge ourselves with these type of games in the non-conference to get ready for conference play.”

Grand Canyon under coach Bryce Drew is coming off a 30-5 season that ended in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. He will be reloading with Tyon Grant-Foster, the WAC Player of the Year, looking to turn pro.

Arizona State went 14-18 and did not reach the postseason in 2023-24, but head coach Bobby Hurley has reshuffled the roster through the transfer portal and with five-star big man Jayden Quaintance part of a highly rated incoming freshman class.

When did Arizona State and Grand Canyon last play in men’s basketball?

The Valley teams last played a two-game series across the Decembers of 2020 and 2021.

ASU came away with a 71-70 win at GCU in the first meeting. Then-Sun Devil guard Remy Martin hit a three with nine seconds left after ASU had blown an eight-point lead to fall behind in the final minute. GCU got 21 points, five assists and four steals from point guard Jovan Blacksher in that loss.

Arizona State pulled out a 67-62 win in Tempe the next year behind 14-point efforts from each of Kimani Lawrence and D.J. Horne. That spoiled a 20-point night from Antelopes guard Holland Woods, who had transferred from ASU to GCU and appeared for each team in the home-and-home series.
