The Arizona State Sun Devils will host their senior night Saturday against Oregon State as they continue to search for their first conference victory, currently sitting at 0-15 in Pac-12.
The Devils will hope some sort of spark through senior night to be able to propel the team to their first victory in conference. ASU has not won a game since Sept. 16.
Arizona State is coming off a 3-set sweep at the hands of the Oregon Ducks but was able to keep the sets close and be able to challenge one of the top teams in the nation.
The Sun Devils were led by Freshman Griere Hughes who led the Sun Devils with 11 kills. Junior Carmen Unzue and freshman Megan Beedie also added to the Sun Devils attack with eight kills each. Sophomore Nicole Peterson recorded 28 assists at the setter position to direct the offense.
The Sun Devils will have one final chance to perform in front of their home fan base as they will wrap up the season on a four-game road stretch in which they will wrap up their season against in-state rival, Arizona.
While Arizona State may not be favored in any remaining match on the season, this will give the Sun Devils a slight advantage as the pressure will be relieved from the players as they will be the underdog in every remaining match during the season.
On the flip side, Oregon State comes into the match fresh off a sweep of Arizona and will look to continue their dominance in the state of Arizona. The Beavers bring in a team that will play very well in system and will challenge Arizona State to get them out of system in order for the Sun Devils to pull off the upset.
