TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Danish freshman Jonathan Gilling scored a career-high 21 points and shot 5 of 6 from 3-point range as Arizona State stunned Arizona 87-80 on Sunday, dealing a severe blow to the Wildcats’ hopes for an at-large NCAA tournament berth.
Carrick Felix scored 16 of his 21 points in the second half for the Sun Devils (10-20, 6-12 Pac-12), who finished the game with six free throws in the final 30.9 seconds, four of them by Trent Lockett, who also scored 21.
Kyle Fogg had 23 points for the Wildcats (21-10, 12-6) but was 7 of 17 shooting. Arizona’s Brendon Lavender matched his career best with 18 points on 6 of 8 3-point shooting. Solomon Hill scored 16 points and Jesse Perry 15 for Arizona.
The final seven-point margin was the biggest lead for either team.
