Men's Hoops Finishes 19th in Both Polls

April 9, 2009

The men's basketball stayed ranked in both major polls for the first time in school history this year, as the final ESPN/USA Today poll put the Sun Devils at 19th, the same as the final Associated Press poll.

ASU peaked at No. 14 and fell to No. 24 in the AP poll, but never fell out. The AP does not do a post NCAA Tournament poll, so ASU's final AP ranking for the 2008-2009 season is 19th.

The Sun Devils also finished 19th in the coaches poll, just the second time in school history it placed in the final USA Today rankings, as it was 13th in 1994-95.

ASU was one of 12 teams that was ranked in every Associated Press poll this season, joining UCONN, Duke, Louisville, Michigan State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, Purdue, UCLA, Villanova and Wake Forest.
