The men’s and women’s basketball squads for the Arizona State Sun Devils and Grand Canyon Antelopes will square off at Phoenix’s Footprint Center on Nov. 14 as part of the Hall of Fame Series.

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

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.
