TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Warren Washington scored 16 of his 18 points in the first half and Arizona State beat Washington State 77-71 on Thursday night.

Washington hit 9 of 10 shots off the floor and added four assists for the Sun Devils (12-3, 3-1 Pac-12). DJ Horne finished with 12 points but missed all six of his 3-point attempts. Desmond Cambridge Jr. scored 13 points, which put him five points short of a career 2,000.

Washington sunk all eight of his first-half shots and scored 16 points to put the Sun Devils 42-36 at the break.

Cambridge hit a 3-pointer with 6:21 to play and Arizona State led 69-58. Washington State responded with a layup from DJ Rodman and consecutive 3-pointers from Jabe Mullins to come within 69-66 with 4:18 remaining.

Mullins missed his next two 3-pointers with a draw opportunity and Devan Cambridge and DJ Horne hit back-to-back jumpers before a Washington dunk extended the ASU lead to 75-66 with 1:32 left.

Mullins finished with five 3-pointers and outscored the Cougars (6-10, 1-4) with 19 points. Rodman threw in his first double-double of the season with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Justin Powell scored 10.

The Sun Devils shot 55% overall, but only 29% from beyond the arc (5 of 17). The Cougars shot 43% from the ground and made 11 of 32 from long range (34%).

Arizona State has earned a degree of revenge after WSU came to Tempe last season and held the Sun Devils to 10 points at halftime in a 51-29 win.
