TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Jermaine Marshall scored eight of his 29 points in the second overtime and Jordan Bachynski blocked T.J. McConnell's layup attempt with 6 seconds left, sending Arizona State to a 69-66 victory over No. 2 Arizona on Friday night.

With both teams struggling offensively most of the night, Arizona State (19-6, 7-5 Pac-12) turned to Marshall when it counted. He went over 20 minutes without a field goal, but hit consecutive 3-pointers and scored on a drive with 14 seconds left to put the Sun Devils up 67-66.

McConnell then tried to drive the lane, but Bachynski swatted his shot away, leading to a breakaway dunk by Jahii Carson.

Arizona State's fans rushed the court, had to be cleared because there was 0.8 seconds left, then poured out of the stands again after Nick Johnson missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

McConnell led Arizona (23-2, 10-2) with 17 points and five rebounds.

NO. 13 LOUISVILLE 82, TEMPLE 58

Wayne Blackshear finished with 13 points, Luke Hancock scored 11, and Harrell had 10 rebounds and four blocks in the game postponed a day because of a snowstorm.

Anthony Lee and Will Cummings led Temple (6-17, 1-10) with 14 points apiece. The Owls shot 37.3 percent from the field to drop their fourth straight game and fall into a tie for last place in the conference with Central Florida.

NO. 23 SMU 77, RUTGERS 65
