The Arizona State Sun Devils could be without big man Marcus Bagley once again as they head on the road for a matchup with the Washington State Cougars on Saturday night.

Bagley played in just three games this season due to a knee injury, and he has not taken the floor since Arizona State’s victory over the North Florida Ospreys on November 15th. He was having a strong start to the season as he scored 18 and 12 points in the first two games. Overall, is averaging 10 points and 4 rebounds per contest.

This season has been quite the struggle for Arizona State, which is 7-15 overall including 3-9 in Pac-12 play. The Sun Devils lost five of their last six games including each of their last two matchups. Meanwhile, Washington State just had a five-game winning streak snapped and is 14-8 overall including 7-4 in conference play.

Right now at DraftKings Sportsbook, the Sun Devils are listed as a 12-point underdog. The line opened with ASU getting 11 points. The total sits at 130.
