    After beating the Wild Cats last night, the Buffs try to replicate last year's great road trip sweep of the AZ schools with a visit to Tempe to face the #13 ranked Sun Devils this evening.

    About the Sun Devils (from the preview at http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=210439106 )-

    ...
    ASU enters the weekend ranked 13th in the latest AVCA Division I Coaches Poll. The Sun Devils are 15-4 overall, 4-4 in the Pac-12. ASU started the season 15-0 before losing its last four matches. The Sun Devils have lost their AVCA All-American Macey Gardner, who tore an ACL in the match against Washington on Oct. 9, for the entire season.

    Cassidy Pickrell is the new team leader with 2.69 kills per set, while Whitney Follette is second with 2.24 kills per set. The team is averaging 13.03 kills per set and is attacking at a .222 clip. The Sun Devils are running a 6-2 offense this season. Bianca Arellano is averaging 5.91 assists per set and Kylie Pickrell is recording 5.15 assists per set.

    Defensively, the Sun Devils are led by Halle Harker, who is picking up 3.67 digs per set. Lexi MacLean is second on the team with 3.11 digs per set. Two Sun Devils are posting 1.00 or more blocks per set. Follette ranks fourth in the Pac-12 with 1.37 blocks per set, while BreElle Bailey is posting 1.08 blocks per set.

    Arizona State leads the all-time series against CU at 6-3.

    Note- After the above preview was written, ASU snapped its 4 match losing streak last night with a convincing sweep (25-14 25-17 25-23) of Utah.

    Live video- Free ASU stream should be available via link that can be found at http://pac-12.com/sports/schedule/network/live-stream/ .

    Live Stats- Couldn't find a direct link as of now on ASU's website. Assume a link will show up by game time via their schedule page at http://www.thesundevils.com/SportSe...0300&SPID=126724&SPSID=782111&DB_OEM_ID=30300 .

    ASU took the first set 25-21, but the Buffs respond in a big way by dominating the second set, 25-8.

    ASU takes the 4th set 25-23 and the match 3-1. Even with the loss, a very good showing against the #13 team in the country.

    Didn't play well in Set 3, but played well in other 3 sets. Hope they are ranked in the low 20's tomorrow.
