Sun Devils Look to Carry Momentum Into Pac-12 Championships

Apr 18, 2022

TEMPE, Ariz. – Winners of six straight to close out the regular season, the No. 20 Sun Devils have caught fire just in time for the postseason. They'll look to carry the momentum into the Pac-12 Championships, which is set to take place on April 20-23 in Ojai, California.

At 6-4 in conference play this spring, the Sun Devils are assigned the No. 5 seed in this tournament and are set to square off against No. 4 USC in the quarterfinals on Thursday, April 21, at 9 a.m. MST.

Tickets are available for fans who wish to attend the tournament, which will be held at the Ojai Valley Tennis Club before relocating to Libbey Park for the championship round on Saturday. All attendees must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 at both sites. Fans can visit here for more information.

The Pac-12 has announced that live coverage of the four-day tournament will be available to stream on the Pac-12 Network and the Pac-12 Now app. A link for live results, if made available, will be shared with fans prior to the start of play.

The Sun Devils are one of five Pac-12 schools ranked in the top 25 of the ITA's latest team polls, joined by Cal (No. 7), UCLA (No. 15), Stanford (No. 17) and USC (No. 19).

Against those four top opponents, the Sun Devils went 2-2 this season, beating both Cal and Stanford in the same season for the first time in program history.

The Sun Devils would love nothing more than to avenge a loss suffered against the Trojans in mid-March, when ASU was quieted 4-1 in Los Angeles. Since the return of sophomore Marianna Argyrokastriti, who was sidelined for six weeks with an ankle injury, the Sun Devils have wreaked havoc all across the league, defeating five consecutive conference foes.

A win against the Trojans on Thursday would propel the Sun Devils to the semifinals of the Pac-12 Tournament for the second consecutive season. Check out how the team has fared at this tournament in recent seasons here.
