With the victory ASU ran its record to 10-6. The Sun Devils scored five perfect 10.0's on the evening.

Jada Cox scored a season-high 9.9 to finish fourth, tied with teammate Carla DeMartini and Carrie Hortsch of UM. ASU's team score of 49.6 on vault was its second-best mark of the season.

Sun Devil junior Kari Muth scored the third 10.0 of the evening for ASU, her first career perfect score on balance beam. Not to be outdone, Kelly followed with her second 10.0 of the season on beam and tied her for first-place. Skokut of the Golden Gophers was third (9.975). Sun Devil senior Amber Giorgianni's 9.925 was good for fourth-place. Germaine tied for fith with a 9.9.

On floor, Germaine posted the fourth 10.0 of the season and the sixth of her illustrious career, taking first. There was a three-way tied for second-place between Kelly, Cox and Minnesota's Yernberg at 9.95. Powell tied a career-high with a 9.925 as did DeMartini.
