The phrase “act like you've been there before” didn't apply to Arizona State basketball fans Friday night, even though it literally should have.
Arizona State knocked off in-state rival No. 2 Arizona 69-66 in double overtime with a wild finish on their home court. So wild, in fact, Sun Devil fans stormed the court twice.
It started when ASU guard Jahil Carson scooped up a loose ball with seconds remaining and a 66-65 lead, but instead of dribbling out the clock in the open court he went for an exclamation point dunk.
Fans rushed the floor with 0.5 seconds left.
Arizona, of course, got one more chance and T.J. McConnell almost hit 3-point heave that would have forced triple overtime. With the victory finally official, Sun Devil fans stormed the court again, because why not?
The last time Arizona State beat a top 10 team at home was a victory over then-No.7 Stanford during the 2007-2008 season, so even the Sun Devil super seniors in the crowd Friday weren't around for that one.
