Preseason prediction: Arizona State was picked sixth in the Pac-12 preseason media poll.

Series: Washington leads 44-34 in a series that began in 1977. The Huskies are 11-14 in the past 25 meetings.

Last meeting: Arizona State upset Washington 75-63 on Feb. 9, 2019, to snap the Huskies’ 12-game winning streak and end UW’s attempt at a perfect Pac-12 record. The Sun Devils overcame 24 turnovers with a 62% shooting performance that picked apart the Huskies’ 2-3 zone. It was ASU’s best shooting night since 2009.

Previous game: On Wednesday night, Arizona State fell victim to a last-second shot and lost 67-65 at Washington State. The Sun Devils were ahead by a point before WSU’s C.J. Elleby drained a three-pointer with four seconds left. ASU committed a season-high 21 turnovers but led twice in the final 80 seconds.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

— Junior guard Remy Martin had his streak of seven consecutive games scoring at least 20 points snapped Wednesday when he tallied 12 on 4-for-15 shooting. He’s scored 20 or more in 20 games at ASU, including a career-high 33 earlier this season at Princeton. Martin is tied for second in the Pac-12 in scoring. Last year, he finished with 13 points and five assists against UW. He was also voted second-team All-Pac-12 last year.

— Junior guard Alonzo Verge Jr., a junior-college transfer who starred at Moberly Area Community College, has made an immediate in his first year with the Sun Devils.

— Romello White, who has been hampered recently by an ankle sprain, ranks first in the Pac-12 with 9.1 rebounds per game and he’s sixth in blocks (1.2). White, who made 62.5% of his shots in his first two seasons, is second in the league while shooting 64.5% on field goals. Last year, he destroyed the Huskies with 17 points on 8-for-9 shooting and eight rebounds.
