Filipino-American point guard Remy Martin dropped 15 points, a career-high 11 assists, and punctuated his performance with a sensational slam dunk to help Arizona State defeat UCLA, 84-73 Friday afternoon (Manila time) at Pauley Pavilion.
The sophomore playmaker, who was back as a starter, put a premium on distributing the ball in the earlygoings, tallying eight dimes in the first half alone, before dropping 13 of his 15 markers in the second half to lead the Sun Devils to their third straight victory.
The 5-foot-11 point guard also delivered a contested rim-rattling slam to make the victory even sweeter.
Arizona State rookie Luguentz Dort dropped 16 points, while senior forward Zylan Cheatham had just 9 markers, but brought down 20 rebounds to backstop Martin.
With the win, the Sun Devils improve to a 14-5 win-loss card, and a 5-2 record in the Pac-12 Conference.
Jaylen Hands and Kris Wilkes led the way with 15 points apiece for the Bruins, who have lost their third straight game.
