The line for the game is Arizona State by 3 points.

Freshman Luguentz Dort scored 24 points in the Nevada loss, the fourth time in eight games he has scored 24-plus points, and he sits tied for 24th nationally in scoring at 22 points per game. Sophomore guard Kimani Lawrence is shooting 24-of-28 from the free-throw line and is hitting 38.9 percent of his 3-point attempts, averaging 14.4 points per game. Arizona State had shot 50 percent or better from the field before hitting a season-low 40.3 percent against Nevada.

Crump hit a career-best five 3-pointers against Texas Southern and finished 8-of-10 from the field overall. Georgia’s frontcourt trio of sophomore forwards Rayshaun Hammonds and Nicolas Claxton and senior Derek Ogbeide has flourished under Crean, combining to average 37.3 points and 21.7 rebounds per contest. That good work has carried over to the defensive end, as the Bulldogs rank ninth nationally in blocked shots per game (6.1) with Claxton sitting 20th at 2.6.

Arizona State will be challenged by a Georgia defense holding opponents to 38.1 percent shooting from the field (third-best in the SEC, No. 26 nationally).
