The Arizona State Sun Devils and the USC Trojans will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Galen Center.

ABOUT ARIZONA STATE (9-10, 2-4 Pac-12): The Sun Devils need to pick up the slack on the defensive end of the floor after allowing a combined 193 points in their last two games, a big chunk coming on 23 successful 3-pointers. USC isn’t as big a threat from 3-point distance as UCLA and Arizona, shooting 35.5 percent from beyond the arc this season, so Arizona State won’t have any excuses if the Trojans reach double figures in 3-pointers made. On the other end of the floor, the Sun Devils might come with another heavy volume from deep, as they took 34 shots from 3-point range against UCLA, only converting 11.

ABOUT USC (16-4, 3-4): The Trojans have been extremely tough to beat at Galen Center since it opened in October of 2006, but have now lost back-to-back games on their home floor for the first time in two years. To avoid losing three in a row, they’ll likely need a big game from their most experienced player, junior point guard Jordan McLaughlin. He’s putting up numbers similar to last season, averaging 13.9 points and five assists while shooting 47.5 percent from the floor, but needs to be even better if USC hopes to stay in the top half of the conference standings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Trojans listed as 9-point favorites versus the Sun Devils, while the game’s total is sitting at 161.5.

Last time out for USC, they were a 73-66 loser as they battled Wildcats at home. They failed to cover in the match as a +3.5-point underdog.

Last time out for Arizona State, they were a 102-80 loser as they battled Bruins on the road. They failed to cover in the match as a +19.5-point underdog.

Arizona State and USC have both lost four of their last six games and will be looking to turn things around when they meet Sunday evening for a Pac-12 game at USC. Both teams are also coming off losses against ranked teams, the Sun Devils at No. 3 UCLA and the Trojans against No. 13 Arizona, but neither went down easily in those losses.

USC cut a 23-point deficit with 10 minutes left to three with a minute to go Thursday night against the visiting Wildcats before losing 73-66. Another good sign from that game was the 20-point performance from Trojans shooting guard Elijah Stewart, who surpassed his 13.4 scoring average for the first time in eight games. Arizona State trailed by as many as 25 in the first half against UCLA before cutting the deficit to seven with 12 minutes remaining and eventually losing 102-80. Torian Graham scored 26 points off the bench and Tra Holder tied his career-high with 22, surpassing 1,000 points for his Sun Devil career in the process.
