Utah is absolutely destroying Arizona State at half

Arizona State is not a bad basketball team. The Sun Devils entered Thursday night at 15-12 overall and winners of their last three games. One problem: Utah looks like it might be a very good team at the moment and emphatically proved it in the first 20 minutes of the game:


NINE. 9. nine. That is not too good, ASU.

The Sun Devils had 10 turnovers. Utah had 10 blocks. Arizona State had nine points. Nine.

It wasn't always a beatdown. With six minutes remaining, Utah led, 23-9. Then Larry Krystkowiak's team ended the half on an 18-0 run to blow things open.

It got ugly:

And yeah, there's still another half of this left.

Update: Utah had to settle for merely doubling up ASU.
