TEMPE, Ariz. -- Few expected Arizona State to give top-ranked Kentucky a battle in the Nov. 28 game, but the 46-point loss was humbling.The Sun Devils fired back after that defeat. From long range. Arizona State tied a school record by knocking down 18 3-pointers in a 97-73 win over UNLV Saturday night.Guard Shannon Evans II led the way with a season-high 28 points as the Sun Devils beat UNLV for the fourth straight season.You wonder about the psyche of the team, the confidence of the team after something like that, coach Bobby Hurley said. But we practiced real hard and guys got a lot of pride. I thought we might struggle some early in the game on offense. I felt that the guys would perform and outwork our opponent defensively.Evans, Torian Graham and Tra Holder combined to make 15 3s, with Graham hitting six as part of his 22 points. Holder added 20 points and Arizona State shot 49 percent from the field.ASU led by as many as 30 points.Probably the most important win of the season, Graham said. We were all in a dark place last week so it was good to just get out of that dark place.ASU used an 11-0 run to take a 20-6 lead in the first half, with Graham and Holder hitting a pair of treys during the run. The Rebels cut the lead to five, 34-29, on free throw by Jalen Poyser with 4:15 left, but the Sun Devils closed out the half on a 17-3 run and stayed in control the rest of the way.A night like this, when everybodys hitting, is always great, Evans said. When we play great defense, everybody gets easier shots and everybody scores, so its more fun for everybody.Thirteen of Arizona States 17 first-half field goals were from long distance. Maurice OField took ASUs 36th 3-point attempt with 17 seconds left, but the effort came up short of both the rim and the school record.Down 19 points at halftime, UNLV couldnt cut the lead into single digits. Poysers 20 points led UNLV, with forward Tyrell Green adding 18 points and nine rebounds.The Rebels had won five of six coming into the game.TIP-INSUNLV: Uche Ofoegbu started after missing the Rebels last game due to illness ...

Pakistan captain Azhar Ali was finally able to crack a smile at the post-match presentations after his side finished the series with a morale-boosting victory to prevent a 5-0 sweep by England. Sarfraz Ahmed and Shoaib Malik laid the foundation during a fourth-wicket stand of 163, after both walked to the crease in the 14th over, as Pakistan pulled off their highest successful ODI chase outside of Asia.The victory was only Pakistans second in ODI cricket this year and ended a run of seven consecutive defeats to England in the format. Azhar admitted that there was still work to do, with the side ranked No. 9 in the world - they have slipped to their lowest-ever points tally since the ICC rankings were introduced - and facing a struggle to qualify automatically for the World Cup, but hoped the building blocks were in place to achieve better results in future.Its a very happy camp right now because it has been a very tough tour for us in ODIs, getting a victory at the end and finishing on a high is really good, especially chasing 300 is really satisfying, Azhar said. The series was gone but credit should be given to the boys for the way they played todays game.Its a very good feeling right now. The way Sarfraz and Shoaib batted, we lost two wickets in one over and that could have been a turning point of the game but the way they built up the partnership was brilliant.Series was gone, losing 4-1 is not a result you want, but the way things were as a team we wanted to finish on a good note and thats what we achieved. There are a lot of things need to be improved, as a team we have to gel together and keep working on it.Despite a 4-1 defeat, there were areas in which Pakistan could point to improvement. Azhar had praise for Hasan Ali, who made his debut in Ireland and picked up a career-best 4 for 60 in Cardiff, as well as the spinning allrounders, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Nawaz, who could help with Pakistans balance in one-day cricket. Imad scored 153 runs without being dismissed in the series while Sarfraz, who made 90 to go with a century at Lords, was the leading run-scorer on either side with 300 runs.A few guys we have seen on this tour have really stepped up, they are young guys and if they can play good consistent cricket we are looking at a bright future, Azhar said. These are very good signs and especially the way Sarfraz batted, this whole tour hhes been exceptional.dddddddddddd Hes been positive and scoring good runs at No. 5, so weve got some good performances but we just need to bind it together and start playing consistent cricket.Another positive was Azhar ending his own run of poor form, finishing fourth on the run-scorers list with 208 runs after making 82 at the Ageas Bowl and 80 at Headingley. Its important to score runs, Im in the team as a batsman. I was missing runs, I got a few 80s so that will really help my confidence, he said. Leading by example is very important I will try and keep that form in coming series so that will help the team.Despite a first limited-overs defeat of the summer, England captain Eoin Morgan was pleased with the teams progress. With a fourth series win out of six secured after three games, England held off a Pakistan fightback at Headingley to win by four wickets after being 72 for 4 but could not go on to claim only their second 5-0 whitewash in ODIs.Weve been outstanding, Morgan said. One of the things we identified before the Pakistan tour was we want to strive to be as consistent as we can. We dont want to be the best one day and the worst another. Every game throughout the series, weve come out with a hunger and determination to perform at our best.Even after winning the series 3-0 and being pushed back chasing 250, I thought we showed a huge amount of character at Leeds. We have shown a lot of strength throughout this series, and more to build on.England looked set to score more than the 302 for 9 that they managed in Cardiff, having been 219 for 4 with more than 12 overs to go, but lost 5 for 64 to limp through to the finish. That was consistent with their recent philosophy of going as hard as possible with the bat and Morgan was happy with the way they went about the innings after being inserted.We lost a lot of momentum by losing wickets in the fashion we did, Morgan said. We dont really worry about the consequences. We just want to be better at executing the shots we want to play so we can post 350. The fact we fell short and only got 300 isnt a bad thing.I thought Jason Roy played well, and Ben Stokes backed up his innings from Leeds again. Were disappointed to lose, but I dont think it was that bad a performance. ' ' '
