Feb. 20, 2010
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Janae Fulcher and Danielle Orsillo both scored 10 points and Alex Earl had nine while tying a career high with three 3-pointers as Arizona State blitzed Arizona in the second half for a 57-49 victory on Saturday.
Earl hit all of her 3-pointers against an Arizona zone defense in the final 8:47, when Arizona State (16-9, 8-6 Pac-10) outscored Arizona 27-11 after falling behind by as many as eight points in the second half to secure its 10th straight victory in the series.
Soana Lucet led Arizona (13-12, 6-8) with 12 points, and Davellyn White had 10. White, fifth in the Pac-10 with a 16.8-point scoring average, was just 2 of 18 from the field.
Earl hit her first two 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to cap a 10-0 run that gave Arizona State a 40-38 lead with 8:13 remaining.
The Sun Devils had a season low eight turnovers on Saturday, including only one in the second half.
