Molina suffered a torn ACL in that game and since then it’s been a struggle for the Cougars. Washington State is 2-4 since the previous meeting.
ASU should beat WSU with a rematch with Washington looming Sunday.
Kelsey Plum went off for the Huskies scoring 34 points in a 65-54 Washington win.
With the young guards having seen them before, the Sun Devils should be better prepared to face Plum and the nation’s best rebounder, Chantel Osahor.
ASU really needs to win both of this games to at least remain in striking distance for a Top-4 finish in the Pac-12 (top four teams get a first-round bye in the Pac-12 Tournament) and to at least hold fifth place in the standings.
With Kelsey Moos cleared to play, she could provide ASU a boost if she does play this weekend. Moos has been out since suffering a foot injury on New Year’s Day.
