No. 24 ASU looks to end two-game skid

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona State Sun Devils dropped 10 slots, to No. 24, in this week's Associated Press Top 25. Arizona State still looks like a lock for the NCAA tournament, but after back-to-back home losses to the Washington schools, the fourth-place Sun Devils are scrambling to stay in the top half of the brutally competitive Pac-10.

The Sun Devils visit Oregon (6-15, 0-9) on Thursday night and then take on improving Oregon State (10-10, 4-5) in Corvallis on Saturday.

The Sun Devils routed the Beavers 69-38 on Jan. 8 in Tempe and drubbed the Ducks 76-58 two nights later.
